Background[edit | edit source]
The regiment was deployed to the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston in the week prior to the Great War. During the food riots that engulfed Boston and many other locations in the nation, the 184th gained notoriety when soldiers of the regiment opened fire on civilians outside the Roxbury Food Bank either shortly before or between October 19 and October 23, 2077, killing at least four and wounding eight others.
The incident was reported by the Boston Bugle as the Roxbury Food Riot. According to Jonathan Corman, spokesman for the Army, the soldiers of the 184th acted within their authority and issued several verbal warnings and only opened fire after protesters had smashed a window and stormed the food bank.
An eyewitness, Hannah Henry, told a different story of how the soldiers had laughed and joked about who they were going to shoot first before the windows were even smashed and the food bank stormed, giving the soldiers the excuse they wanted to open fire.
