Summary

In spring 1932, thousands of veterans marched to Washington, D.C., to pressure Congress to pay them their "bonus" for having served in World War I. When Congress rejected the Bonus Army's demands, many veterans vowed to stay in their makeshift camps in the nation's capital until the bonus was approved. Authorities ordered them to leave, but many bonus marchers refused. Fearing violence and subversive activity, President Herbert Hoover chose to evict the Bonus Army. Did the eviction serve the interests of the United States by removing radicals and criminals from the streets of the nation's capital? Or did it dishonor the service of the war veterans who made up the Bonus Army? 

This eBook examines the eviction of the Bonus Army and delves into the pro and con arguments that surrounded it. It includes a timeline, primary sources, a bibliography, a "Learn More About" chapter with more information on the topic, and a "What If" chapter speculating on what might have happened had Hoover not evicted the Bonus Army.
