Biographical / Historical
The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was created as part of the Emergency Conservation Work legislation, passed in 1933, as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal program, designed in response to the economic crisis of the 1930s. Eventually, CCC camps were installed in all 48 states, plus in Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, and the U. S. Virgin Islands.
The CCC in Mississippi worked on several projects. These included the construction of bridges, improvements on national forests, the establishment of new national forests, which included the reforestation of land susceptible to erosion and the construction of roadways and recreation areas, the construction of state parks, and the development of the Vicksburg National Military Park.
