These Photos Perfectly Sum Up The Democratic National Convention

The final day of the DNC has come to an end and Hillary Clinton has made history as the first woman to accept a major party's nomination for president of the United States.

Hillary Clinton is surely experiencing a whirlwind of emotions as she has become the first woman chosen to lead a major-party presidential ticket. "When there are no ceilings, the sky's the limit,” she said with humility as she accepted the Democratic nomination at the DNC.

The 2016 Democratic National Convention, which took place at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, from July 25-28, saw many memorable moments. While the internet will remember some of them for the years to come, others may be put on the backburner.

However, these photos perfectly sum up what the 2016 DNC looked like for Bill and Hillary Clinton, Tim Kaine, performers, supporters and all the others present.
