Who Made up the Bonus Army That Marched on Washington?

Answer

The bonus army consisted of army veterans from World War I. They marched on Washington in 1932. Hoover was President at the time. Their march was to protest the delayed payment of a Bonus for veterans. The Bonus wouldn't be paid out until 1945 and they believed it should be paid out sooner.
