Remembering 1968: The Making of the President

Venue: Church of Ireland – Merriebelle Farm Stage

As part of our ‘Remembering 1968’ strand Dr Myles Dungan, author and presenter of The History Show on RTÉ Radio 1, looks back at one of the most dramatic and controversial presidential elections in American history. It encompassed the eclipse of a sitting president, the assassination of one of the leading candidates, riots at the Democratic selection convention in Chicago, a Southern racist uprising and a far tighter race than anyone had predicted.
