Leaning on a Shovel

Record #:
During the 1930s, the state endured the depths of the Great Depression. President Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal legislation pumped millions of dollars into the economy, which resulted in projects including the Appalachian Trail, Blue Ridge Parkway, tree planting to control erosion, and building courthouses. Much of the work was done, not by heavy equipment, but by men with shovels.
