I've altered the name of the march. It was not the Commonwealth of Christ. It was the Commonweal in Christ. 16:47, 14 April 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]


They got scared when people got arrested from walking on a lawn? ...It's more like Pussy's Army

Once they lost their leaders, they simply drifted apart. How were they "pussies"? --Kross 02:25, Apr 15, 2005 (UTC)

It took more than a few days, see May 11 New York Times Reference. Pustelnik (talk) 03:56, 13 November 2008 (UTC) --Reply[reply]

I added the redirect from Cox's Army . I also want to add the following, but I know of no research on the history of the phrase:

Cox's Army is a different protest march, I have set up a "distinguish".Pustelnik (talk) 18:11, 21 February 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

-- section marker -- Linguistic Note

As of the 1970's "enough food to feed Coxey's Army" and other derivative phrases such as "that's enough to feed Cox's Army" had become opaque in at least Tulsa, OK, USA. That is, users of the phrase understood its meaning, but could not identify who or what Cox or Coxey was. (Source: personal experience) --Mossymosquito 26 Aug, 2005

-- The entire first paragraph was cut off for some reason; I went on and got the original text from their Wikipedia source because for some reason they have the full version. I hyperlinked the words as well.

Worse than "Great" Depression[edit]

The economy just wasn't as strong in the 1890s as the 1930s. There were no charitable institutions that could take up the slack and no local government ones either. When the local government had problems (and they did) all small gifts of food or clothing stopped. People literally starved to death, which they seldom did during the "Great" Depression. There were charities/soup kitchens then that took up the slack. So this was not only the worst depression up to that time, it was the worst depression ever. I think Samuel Eliot Morrison makes that point someplace bu \t I don't have the reference, Student7 (talk) 12:48, 18 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

requesting protection due to frequent vandalism[edit]

This article has repeatedly been vandalized by idiots anonymous IP vandals; more than a dozen times in the past year and six times today alone from someone in San Bernardino, CA. Consequently, I'm requesting it be semi-protected. Occam's Shaver (talk) 06:51, 9 October 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
