It was HIS fault. How could he…

In 1932, World War I veterans and those who supported them marched down the streets of Washington, D.C. in protest for their bonus payment to be given to them earlier for their services. But the Service Certificates, which were suppose to be their payments, were suppose to mature for 20 years after the certificates were issued, and because of the law, the certificates couldn’t be redeemed till 1945. President Hoover ordered the army to clear out the veterans. This resulted from a number of casualties ranging from veterans to children.
