GSMNP: that magnificent army

THAT MAGNIFICENT ARMY OF YOUTH AND PEACE-In 1933 an Act of Congress created the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) to counter the hopelessness felt by millions of young men in the depth of the Great Depression. In this landmark study, the establishment of the CCC in North Carolina is discussed, camp life is recounted in great detail, and the accomplishments of the Corps are examined. Separate chapters present the involvement of African Americans and the Cherokee in North Carolina's CCC efforts. Ninety black-and-white illustrations bring the story of That Magnificent Army to life.
