Bonus Army 1932 World War I veterans press photo soldiers military Hoover

A great original press-wire photo from 1932, showing some Army officers riding into Washington, D.C. to put down the infamous Bonus Army, World War I veterans who were struggling financially during the Depression and wanted their bonus early for fighting in the war. This got a lot of flack, and President Hoover mishandled the situation.
