History:  The Salt March.  In protest of Britian’s Salt Acts, Ghandi lead a 240 mile,  24 day march, which concluded April 5, 1930 at the coastal village of Dandi, on the Arbian Sea, in India.

The March was prompted by Britain’s Salt Acts prohibited Indians from collecting or selling salt, a staple in the Indian diet. Citizens were forced to buy the vital mineral from the British, who exercised a monopoly and heavy taxes over the manufacture and sale of salt.
