An epic battle between competing paleontologists Othniel Charles Marsh and Edward Drinker Cope in the late 19th century helped set the stage for the infancy of the study of prehistoric animals, and helped confirm the hypothesis of Darwin's new theory of evolution. The rivalry between both men was so intense that they ridiculed each other in public and in print, led to espionage and the destruction of fossils and ultimately left both men shattered and penniless.
