In 1896, Nebraska politician William Jennings Bryan emerged as a powerful figure in the Democratic party where he stood three times as the party's nominee for President of the United States. Jennings also served as the United States Secretary of State under Woodrow Wilson and, shortly before his death, gained national attention for attacking the teaching of evolution in the Scopes Trial.
