World War I veterans gather at a tent serving as the Bonus Army temporary headquarters at Washington and Hill streets. A U.S. flag flies above the entrance. A sign on a building in the background reads "Sam's Auto Salvage and Supplies."
The Bonus Army, also known as the Bonus Expeditionary Force, was a grassroots movement of veterans who marched on Washington D.C. in the summer of 1932 demanding the government give them cash for certificates they had been given in 1924, but which could not be redeemed until 1945.
