Abstract

“Comes the Dawn” of June 4, 1933, and with it the arrival of a special train bearing 200 enlisted C.C.C. men, regular army personnel equipment, supplies, and baggage. Trucks start moving, tools are issued, and men start cleaning up the camp site. Stoves are erected. Groceries and supplies are broken out. Noon-and hot meals are served. By night tents are erected and the boys are settled. Thus is the first C. C. C. camp in Louisiana established and the greatest experiment in forest conservation the world has ever known becomes a local reality.
