1968 Democratic Convention - HISTORY

 

On August 28, 1968, at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago,
thousands of Vietnam War protesters battle police in the streets, while
the Democratic Party falls apart over an internal disagreement concerning
its stance on Vietnam. Over the course of 24 hours, the predominant
American line of thought on the Cold War with the Soviet Union was
shattered.
