  • The Civilian Conservation Corps in Letchworth State Park

    Letchworth State Park, located in the Genesee Valley of western New York State, is renowned for its natural beauty, scenic roads, trails, and recreational facilities. Created from the private estate of William Pryor Letchworth in 1907, the park quickly grew in size and popularity. A series of ambitious expansion and development plans were under way when the Great Depression struck, threatening the park's future. That future was restored when President Roosevelt's Civilian Conservation Corps brought hundreds of young men to the four CCC camps established in the park. From 1933 to 1941, they worked on cabins, roads, and other projects,

  • Tree Army : A Pictorial History of the Civilian Conservation Corps 1933-1943

    The New Deal programs of President Franklin D. Roosevelt changed the life of every American from his inauguration in 1933 to the present. There is general agreement that one of the best programs established at that time was the Civilian Conservation Corps. The CCC was established to provide employment for some of the millions of youths who could not find jobs during the Depression years. The amount of work accomplished by the Corps in just nine years is truly staggering. We should be thankful that the government had the foresight in 1933 to establish

    The Civilian Conservation Corps Ccc Employed Mainly
    Hard Work and a Good Deal traces the history of the Civilian Conservation Corps, which supplied jobs to more than 77,000 Minnesotans during the Great Depression. Nearly one hundred interviews contribute to oral historian Barbara W. Sommer's lively narrative as the "boys" look back on their time in the CCC, during which many of them became men. African American enrollees tell of the segregated policies enforced in the army-run camps; workers for the CCC-Indian Division remember reservation projects that included rebuilding a fur trade-era stockade at Grand Portage. Together, these men give voice to early efforts that advanced the conservation

  • The New Deal's Forest Army : How the Civilian Conservation Corps Worked

    Propelled by the unprecedented poverty of the Great Depression, President Franklin D. Roosevelt established an array of massive public works programs designed to provide direct relief to America's poor and unemployed. The New Deal's most tangible legacy may be the Civilian Conservation Corps's network of parks, national forests, scenic roadways, and picnic shelters that still mark the country's landscape. CCC enrollees, most of them unmarried young men, lived in camps run by the Army and worked hard for wages (most of which they had to send home to their families) to preserve America's natural treasures. In The New Deal's Forest
