A turbulent year in the United States, 1968 was also the year of the Chicago Democratic National Convention. Chicago braced for antiwar protesters and Mayor Daley brought the full force of law and order to meet them. Riots ensued outside of the Convention. Inside delegates were nominating Vice President Hubert S. Humphrey as the presidential nominee and Senator Edmund Muskie as the vice presidential nominee.
A relic from the convention, a conventioneers vest, a historical collectible. You can find it here.
