The lieutenant was another characteristic of this troubled period of the early Republic, lieutenants represented the Brazilian middle class that he was tired of the political system that has always favored oligarchies. So in 1920, young lieutenants of Rio de Janeiro called for the moralization of the public sector and an end to corruption, not slow to act with force and bombed the city of Rio de Janeiro. The president of the time, Arthur Bernardes reacted and ordered the closure of military club, eighteen soldiers (The Eighteen of the Fort) withstood the onslaught of legal forces and marched along the coast of Rio de Janeiro until most of them executed.
