And Ike integrated schools in Little Rock with troops.

And McArthur used troops to chase the WWI bonus army out of Washington during the depression.

And Washington used troops to collect the whiskey tax.

And Lincoln used troops to keep several states from leaving what they had thought was a voluntary union.

And speaking of unions, troops were routinely used to break strikes.
