William Jennings Bryan prepares to speak while holding a megaphone to the ear of the Democratic donkey as he prepares to accept the Democratic nomination for president for the third time. Bryan, the forty-first U.S. Secretary of State, was the Democratic nominee for president in 1896, 1900, and 1908, and was one of the leading lecturers of the progressive era, championing pacifism, free silver, popular democracy, and regulation of big business.
