Original caption: Three men from the mob around little Rock Central high School are driven from the area at bayonet point by these soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division on September 25, 1957. The presence of the troops permitted the nine Negro students to enter the school with only minor background incidents. President Eisenhower was compelled to enforce the Supreme Court’s public school desegregation decision with troops after the integrity of the court was challenged by Arkansas Governor Orval Faubus.
