Do you believe it was an actual thing hoax or something that was being conspired. I personally trust Smedley Butler words. But I would love to know my other friends opinions on the matter on this forum.
hoax, I shall say nothing more than that for the time being; only when I bring down my answer from two pages of words.
See the thing is I trust Butler not to lie about that. But at the same time too he was far left even by the standards of the day, so he did have an agenda. But if there was any moment to actually take the capital there was the golden moment during the bonus army.
