Description

Print edition. This book contains 250 anecdotes about people in politics and history, including this one: William Jennings Bryan used to travel the country by train, stopping in towns and cities to make political speeches. In one small town, no platform was available for him to use to make his speech, so he stood on a piece of farm equipment known as a manure spreader. Standing on the manure spreader, Mr. Bryan told the crowd, "This is the first time I have ever made a speech while standing on the Republican platform."
