Today in History

aug28

During the August 28th,1963 March on Washington, the government expected the worst and arranged to have nearly 20,000 troops on standby should the day’s march get unruly. Local liquor stores were ordered  to stay closed that day, an event that hadn’t occurred since Prohibition.  Officials even rigged the audio system so that they could quickly cut Martin Luther King Jr.’s microphone and switch to music if he  were to say anything that might incite violence. None of these measures were  necessary, however, as the day was entirely peaceful.
