Fifty years ago this month, the nation seemed to be unraveling. Americans were dying in Vietnam at a rate of more than one thousand per month. The assassinations of Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. had shaken the political and culture landscape.

And then the Democratic National Convention convened in downtown Chicago. The event quickly devolved into violence and chaos.

Bill Walsh joined In The Moment for a look back at the convention 50 years later.
