        Franklin D. Roosevelt With CCC Conservation Works | Ken Burns: The National Parks

        The national parks were one of the principal beneficiaries of Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal policies. During the Great Depression, three million Americans found much-needed work, and money to send home to their families, in the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), improving roads and buildings, and planting trees in national parks and forests. In this image, FDR sits with a group of CCC workers at a table at Big Meadows on Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park, Virginia, along with Harold Ickes and others.
