MUSSOLINI MARCH TO ROME

Italian fascists marched on Rome Oct. 28, 1922 after King Vittorio Emanuele II refused premier Luigi Facta's request to send the army to stop them. One day later Benito Mussolini, second from left sash over black shirt, and aides marched in Rome, as the King dismissed the existing Government and appointed Mussolini to head a new one. Note at right, a "camicia nera" (black shirt) holding bolt-studded club fascists used to swing during riots with political opponents. (AP Photo)
