This "CCC" project is part of a larger one that will undoubtedly never be completed. Some 23,000 plus workers served in the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in South Dakota. This project core has been adopted from the project started by Otto Bochman utilizing several sources and visiting the majority of CCC campsites. Early on Peggy Sanders shared information that she had gathered. Her extensive work on the CCC, her book(s) and her contribution to the Museum in Hill City have been most important in reaching this point in our project.
