Photos: Democratic National Convention 2016, Day 2
Hillary Clinton made history on the second night of the Democratic National Convention as the first woman to clinch a major U.S. political party's presidential nomination.
Former President Bill Clinton recounted the history of his relationship with wife, now the Democratic presidential nominee, sharing humorous anecdotes and outlining her accomplishments. Other speakers on Tuesday included House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, 9/11 survivor Lauren Manning and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.
Elsewhere in the city, protests raged on. From Sanders supporters to anti-facist groups to marijuana legalization demonstrators, the scene outside Philadelphia City Hall on Tuesday was filled with protesters.
