Annotation:

This website gives a picture of a newspaper article that tells about the bonus army. The newspaper article states that the bonus check was the reason the veterens are marching at Washington. It also states at the top that the veterans were "whites" and "Negros".The newspaper is dated December 5th, 1932. In one part of the article, it gives some conditions that the veterans stayed in at Washington, like the cold winter and having no food. In another section of the article, it tells how what the veterans were doing, the march, was criminal. I think that the soldiers should of got their bonus because they earned it fighting in WWI.

Document 1: Article

This article tells how the veteran problem was handled. It syas that as soon as the veterans started showing up, president Hoover ordered the police to close the gates of the white house grounds. He also ordered them to clear out Pennsylvania Avenue and streets near of pedestrians and vehicular traffic. Over four hundred policemen were summoned to surround the Executive Mansion, many that were relieved of duty were called back to duty. Hoover wanted the streets clear in ew minutes or he was going to call out reguar army troops. It also says that the veterans come from all over the country and were just semi-skilled laborers. In the aricle, it states that a large minority of the veterans were skilled mechanics, white-collar wokers, and professional people.
