The Minisink Valley Historical Society is pleased to announce the publication of four titles written about an important era in our nation's history. The Society's director, Peter Osborne, has extensively researched and written about the work of the well- known federal agency called the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) throughout the region.
The CCC was created by one of the last century's leading figures, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. From 1933-1942 one of the most effective and important efforts ever undertaken by our nation to combine relief efforts, as welfare was then known, with major conservation projects in our parks and forests was undertaken. It is the story of three million young men who served in the Roosevelt Tree Army, as it was known. Their motto was "We Can Take It!" because of the hard work they undertook.
