Chicago 1968

August 28, 1968 ~ At the Democratic National Convention in Chicago, overzealous police in riot gear brutally beat protesters who are demonstrating against the Vietnam War. The Doors, Graham Nash and Phil Ochs all write songs about it.

Just a kid and visiting my Big Sis in Wausau, I remember sitting in the living room of her apartment watching the whole scene unfold on TV. It was surreal and still feels like it was yesterday.
