Tractors, displaying American flags, Confederate flags, and American Agriculture Movement flags, are parked on the National Mall near the U.S. Capitol Building as part of the second Tractorcade encampment in Washington, D.C., 28 February 1979
The American Agriculture Movement was an organization founded in 1977 with the purpose of lobbying that the federal government pay higher prices for crops. In 1978 they organized the first Tractorcade wherein thousands of farmers drove their tractors to Washington, D.C. in protest of the Carter Administration and the Farmers Home Administration would stop foreclosures on farms. Again on February 5, 1979, farmers arrived on tractors and held another Tractorcade protest. They occupied the National Mall for several weeks.
