Photos – The struggle up Pennsylvania Avenue


The head of the parade ran into trouble with its procession at somewhere between Fourth and Fifth Streets along Pennsylvania Avenue. The spectators had spilled into the streets, and there seemed little that the police could or would do at that point. Alice Paul and District officials were in cars that drove up the Avenue ahead and on each side of the marchers, trying to clear a path. The cars did little good, however. People would move to avoid the cars but then surge back into place once the cars had passed. The lack of police, or their indifference in many locations, gave license to those who felt like disrupting the marchers.
