The Civilian Conservation Corps

Good documentary on the Civilian Conservation Corps at American Experience.  Nice that PBS lets us foreigners watch these programs on line.  I added the link to "Other Sites."


  1. The CCC - an old idea whose time has come again. It sure as heck would reduce unemployment among America's youth.

  2. The CCC was indeed a great idea. Given the amount of money the government doles out in the way of welfare, unemployment comp, and other related costs, you would think Republicans and Democrats could come together on a jobs bill that would put these people to work on government-sponsored project that would improve the infrastructure of this country.
