William Jennings Bryan and His Principles
William Jennings Bryan was a man who lived by his principles. He was not afraid to take an unpopular stand on an issue. Although Bryan lost three presidential elections, he did become secretary of state in President Woodrow Wilson's administration in 1913. As a peacemaker, he negotiated treaties with 30 nations in which they agreed to investigate all disputes with other nations rather than go to war. Although Bryan did not always get his way, he remained firm in what he believed in.
