On May 1, 1894, a tattered and hungry army of unemployed people from the western and midwestern states converged on Washington DC in the first protest march on the nation's capital. Coxey's Army tells the story of the remarkable movement to persuade Congress and President Cleveland to create public works jobs and stimulate the American economy.
