During the weeks of the Scopes trial, an independent group of Holiness movement followers, who rejected the theory of evolution and other expressions of modernism, camped near Dayton and held services every night. Many of the visiting journalists, scientists, and attorneys had observed the group's nighttime services. On Sunday, July 19, 1925, some of the residents of Defense Mansion, including Arthur Garfield Hays, Frank Thone, and Watson Davis, watched an outdoor baptism service being held in a nearby creek. Davis took eight photographs of the events. In this image, some of the outside observers are visible in the foreground.
