The Bonus Army (1932)
In 1924, Congress legislated a bonus for World War I veterans, to be paid to them or their heirs in 1945. But the Great Depression led perhaps as many as twenty thousand unemployed veterans and their families to march to Washington in the spring of 1932 to demand immediate payment. Unsuccessful, most of the Bonus Army left their makeshift quarters at Anacostia Flats outside the Capitol and went home. In July, President Hoover reluctantly ordered the remaining occupied government buildings cleared. Ultimately, General Douglas MacArthur led hundreds of troops in dispersing the squatters. In the melee, scores of civilians were injured and a baby was accidentally killed. The incident diminished Hoover’s popularity further.
Suggestions for Term Papers
1. Was the government justified in using force to evict the Bonus Army?
2. Discuss public reaction to the Bonus Army and its dispersal.
3. Compare the Bonus Army’s march on Washington with that of Coxey’s Army in 1894.
