The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) within the U.S. Department of Justice presents FBI case documents in PDF format regarding the Bonus March. In June, 1932, the Bonus Expeditionary Force, also known as the "Bonus Army" marched on Washington, D.C., to advocate the passage of the "soldier's bonus" for service during the Great War (later known as World War I). The situation escalated to violence as the veterans and their families were forced out of the city and their shanty dwellings were burned, causing many to feel that President Hoover lacked compassion for the dispossed. On July 28, 1932, two bonus marchers were shot by police and the entire mob became hostile and riotous. The FBI, then known as the United States Bureau of Investigation checked its fingerprint records files to ascertain the police records of persons who had been arrested during the riots or who had participated in the bonus march. The case file is provided as part of the FBI's Freedom of Information Privacy Acts (FOIPA) Web site
