The Legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps

The Legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps

ByDonna M. Kshir

Imagine being able to capture and share the most cherished memories of your town, the people, the buildings that have fallen into disrepair, the empty lots where thriving businesses used to stand and the relationships with the people you love the most for future generations to experience. Bestselling authors Donna Kshir has spent the last few years speaking and recording information she found; beginning a journey back to the past through storytelling. In 1932, the American people voted President Herbert Hoover out of office. Searching for an answer,the American people turned to a man promising a better quality of life. In March 1933, within a few short weeks of his inauguration, newly elected President Franklin Roosevelt immediately commenced a massive revitalization program to provide relief for unemployed workers across America. He proposed the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) to provide jobs to the next generation of Americans and preserve the land.
