The March on Washington is probably the most famous and historical march of the American Civil Rights movement. There Dr. Martin Lurther King, Jr. gave his "I Have a Dream" speech. Estimates of the crowd size of participants at the march range from 200,000 to 500,000. Official march buttons were sold for a quarter each, with 175,000 sold by August 17 and 150,000 more on order.
