William Jennings Bryan

William and Cross of Gold

William was a former Silverstein congressmen from Nebraska and a powerful speaker that captured the democratic nomination. 

His Cross of Gold Speech is one of the most famous in American history. It was so amazing that it got both the democrats and the populists to nominate him for president.

You shall not press down upon the brow of labor this crown of thorns, You shall not crucify mankind upon a cross of Gold!

William did not win the election but carried the democratic west and south.
