Did you know that many of the Minnesota State Parks’ log and stone buildings, sea walls and picnic shelters were built by some of the 29% of Minnesota men who were unemployed during the Great Depression? These men signed up for the Civilian Conservation Corps, part of Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal. They were given food, lodging, and $25 a month, and in return they fought fires, constructed and maintained trails and telephone lines, and numerous other projects benefiting the citizens of Minnesota.
Join us at Duluth Public Library as author/songwriter Bill Jamerson presents a program of songs and stories about the boys and men of the Civilian Conservation Corps.
