ANTI-WAR PROTESTS ON THIS DAY IN 1968

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.

Approaching the Colorado foothills of the Rocky Mountains during his second exploratory expedition, Lieutenant Zebulon Pike spots a distant mountain peak
that looks “like a small blue cloud.” The mountain was later named Pike’s Peak
in his honor.

Pike’s explorations of the newly acquired Louisiana Territory of the U.S. began before the nation’s first western explorers, Lewis and Clark, had returned from
their own expedition up the
Missouri River. Pike was more of a professional
military man than either Lewis or Clark, and he was a smart man who had
taught himself Spanish, French, mathematics, and elementary science. When
the governor of Louisiana Territory requested a military expedition to explore
the headwaters of the
Mississippi, General James Wilkinson picked Pike to
lead it.

In Washington, D.C. nearly 100,000 people gather to protest the American war
effort in Vietnam. More than 50,000 of the protesters marched to the
Pentagon
to ask for an end to the conflict. The protest was the most dramatic sign of
waning U.S. support for President Lyndon Johnson’s war in Vietnam. Polls
taken in the summer of 1967 revealed that, for the first time, American
support for the war had fallen below 50 percent.
