ABSTRACT
The article profiles William Jennings Bryan, an Irish American political leader. We generally do not remember the failed presidential candidates, especially long after the elections in which they ran. But Bryan was no ordinary presidential candidate. His rare eloquence is remembered by many who could not name the man who won that race. During his 1896 Democratic presidential campaign, Bryan aligned himself with those who advocated free coinage of silver. Bryan took his campaign and his ideas throughout the country, speaking with great skill. Although he lost to William McKinley, he did not lose his place on the American stage.
