Gandhi Leads Revolt
Gandhi began his revolt against British rule by leading a march to the Gujart seacoast. There, he illegally made salt. The march was the beginning of both a widespread campaign of civil disobedience and some less peaceful rioting. In Peshawar, government troops fired on an unarmed crowd, killing thirty persons. In May, Gandhi was arrested and held without trial. By year's end, sixty-thousand had been arrested, one-hundred and three killed and more than four hundred injured by police.
