PHILADELPHIA - History was made Tuesday night at the Democratic National Convention as  Hillary Clinton was formally nominated for president.

Inside the Wells Fargo Arena, Clinton became the first woman to earn the presidential nomination from a major political party in United States history.

Clinton’s old primary rival, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, did the honors by moving to nominate the former secretary of state by voice vote. 

Meanwhile, outside Sanders supporters were outraged as they stormed the media tent shortly after Clinton officially became the nominee.

Law enforcement stepped in, locking down the tents at one point. 

On the inside of the tent, many protesters refused to speak and had their mouths taped shut. Others explained why the group was so angry.

On the outside of the tent, one Sanders delegate from Nevada said we were witnessing what he called a "Dem exit." 

On a night when even the leader of this revolution worked to usher in unity, Sanders supporters said their days as registered Democrats are over.

Despite the protests, a star-studded lineup will work to make the case to the American public that Clinton is best suited to be the nation's president. 

Vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine will speak tonight, as well as current Vice President Joe Biden, and President Barack Obama.
