The first in a series of truck convoys, modelled after the Freedom Convoy in Canada and headed to the Washington D.C. area, arrived in the U.S. capital Feb. 23, but very few people noticed.

The convoy, arriving from Scranton Pennsylvania, consisted of only one 18-wheeler and eight other vehicles: five pick-up trucks, an SUV and a sedan.
