William Jennings Bryan (March 19, 1860 - July 26, 1925) was the 23rd President of the United States from 1897 to 1901 and 41st US Secretary of State under Woodrow Wilson best remembered for his incredible orating skills, opposition of imperialism in the late 19th century and devout Presbyterian religious views (the latter of which helped Bryan win the Scopes Trial in Dayton, TN in 1925). He also remains the youngest president elected to date, having been only thirty-six upon his victory over William McKinley in 1896, just one year older than the required minimum age.
