Police Clash With Protestors at the 1968 National Democratic Convention in Chicago Ca. 1968Unknown - 1968
During the 1968 National Democratic Convention in Chicago, local police and National Guardsmen brutally clashed with student protestors. Much of the conflict was broadcast live on national television, and overshadowed the convention's nomination of Vice President Hubert Humphrey as the Democratic candidate for president. Political observers argued that the protests, along with an already deeply divided Democratic Party, helped Richard M. Nixon win the presidential election.
