The Civilian Conservation Corps in Appalachia
Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) enrollee William L. Cross, Appalachia, Virginia, atop a scaffolding that will be used to erect a prefab camp workshop building. The CCC was probably Virginia's most popular New Deal agency, employing thousands of young jobless men and introducing significant new state infrastructure. This picture is part of the photographic record of the CCC housed at the Library of Congress.
