Citizen and I are headed to Denver this week, along with the Democratic Party, which is returning to the city after a 100-year hiatus! In 1908 the Democrats gathered in Denver to choose a nominee to be president of the 88 million Americans alive at that time. The 1908 Democratic National Convention was the first major-party convention in a Western state, and the first to host female delegates. Check out these great pictures of the first Democratic National Convention held in Denver. The photos give you an even better view than the one nominee William Jennings Bryan had — considering he didn't even attend his own convention!
