    Also there was only one entrance to the rally, they're photos of different sites as well. People were still pouring in when the rally started. There were definitely more than expected the speakers weren't numerous or large enough for the crowd either.

    Found an awesome SATELLITE IMAGE of the rally supplied by Geoeye.

    It's a big image, so wait for it to load...
    http://geoeyemediaportal.s3.amazonaw...c_10_30_10.jpg

    I'm convinced there were more than 212,000 people there, but we'll never know... besides those being crunched together as closely as possible, those who couldn't hear or see anything sometimes branched off into other buildings (bars, museums,etc) to watch the rally on TV.

    Article about the rally:
    Consortiumnews.com
    "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." óJohn Adams

    Nice pic, I too am convinced the estimate is low.

    does anyone really give a crap which rally was bigger? Isn't the message of a ralley more important than how many people did or did not attend?

    ...and they didn't even have a billionaire to pay for the buses to bus in the paid activists so they could make it appear there were more supporters than there really were.
