|Title||Religious address by Hon. Williams Jennings Bryan / [unknown]. In Mountain herald / Lincoln Memorial University.|
|Description||An article from the "Mountain Herald" about the religious address of Hon. William Jennings Bryan, the noted orator and political leader, at Lincoln Memorial University on June 5, 1921. Since a vast crowd of people arrived in cars, wagons and buggies, by horseback, and on foot, provisions were made for an outdoor address. Mr. Bryan spoke to an audience of over two thousand people, primarily about faith and the spiritual needs of humanity. He took issue with certain doctrines of Darwinism. Henry Clay's speech in 1848, to several thousand people at nearby Cumberland Gap is also cited, as both involved a gathering of unusually large audiences from the mountain region.|
