LIVING IN VIRGINIA "The CCC Boys"
Running Time: 30 minutes
To provide jobs during the Depression, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt hired 6500 "boys" from Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania to build this country's first national park (The Shenandoah National Park and Skyline Drive). Many of them were literally young boys who lied about their age in order to get a job with a paycheck. LIV talks with these "boys" today.
