America’s Bonus Army

I enjoyed enormously “The Poisonwood Bible” by Barbara Kingsolver [my review here]. Now I am reading her new novel “The Lacuna”.

It is full of historic references and I’m not familiar with all of them, so I’m constantly checking things out of the web.

For instance, I knew nothing at all about the Bonus Army which went to Washington DC in 1932 and was so brutally broken up. You can find more information here.
