Assisted by Eisenhower and Patton, Gen. MacArthur led troops that cleaned out the Hooverville shanty town occupied by Bonus Army veterans and protestors.

"...MacArthur's role in the assault against his fellow Americans is singular in the nation's history and marks the first time that tanks rolled through the capital, mowing down civilians."
