Program Description:

In his book, Rightful Heritage, Douglas Brinkley concludes that, “few [New Deal] programs would shine brighter” than the Civilian Conservation Corps. During the presence of the CCC in Florida, from 1933 until 1942, there were over 70 camps around the state with a total of just under 50,000 young men working on projects. This informative program presents an overview of the CCC and the projects, from the Keys to Panhandle, that were accomplished during this historic period.
