Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Thousands of people watched on Monday night as one of the final election rallies of the 2016 presidential campaign was held at Independence National Historical Park in Philadelphia's Old City neighborhood.

Speakers at the rally included President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, President Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, Katie McGinty, and Mayor Jim Kenney, and there were performances by Jon Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen. Secretary Hillary Clinton was the final speaker.
