called The army of the commonwealth, to be composed of men out of work, for a march to Washington in order to influence Congress to take some action for the benefit of trade in the country.
Coxey appointed March 10 as the day the army would start from Massillon, and early in the year a great number of small companies started from the South and West to join him. For a time it seemed as if the movement would be an impressive one.
Fully 1,500 men, composing the Western detachment, under Colonel Fry, reached the Mississippi.
This detachment was constantly growing in numbers, and was well received by the people through the States as it progressed towards Massillon to join Coxey.
But at this time three weeks of constant rain interfered, the army was unable to progress, and soon scattered, as did many smaller detachments.
Thus it was that Coxey was obliged to make his start with but 400 men, and about the same number, despite another rainy spell, arrived in Washington on May 2.
