An army of veterans and their families marched towards Washington in 1932 to claim the cash bonuses promised by Congress and Herbert Hoover -- 20,000 people set up camps and made radical demands on behalf of America's hungry and poor. President Hoover loaned them tents, cots, and rations, but when Gen. MacArthur's troops attacked the protesters, the country became convinced that the president had no compassion for the dispossessed. Will be part of nine-hour series on the Depression in production at Blackside, Inc, to air in 1993.
