• Short Summary

    President Roosevelt visits men in a CCC Camp in Virginia and takes a meal with the men.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "America. Roosevelt 'Roughs It'. 'Franklin D...' the most popular man in America today - in midst of N.R.A. Campaign, makes informal visit to 'CC Camps' in Shenandoah Valley."

    Shenandoah Valley, Virginia, United States of America (USA).

    Shots of American President Franklin D Roosevelt sitting at outdoor table eating meal with group of young men - possibly army cadets.

    FDR makes speech about CCC camps. He jokes that he would like to take time off and spend it at one of the Camps but that he'd put on weight.

    N.B. The NRA or National Recovery Act was part of the American New Deal. I'm not clear about what the CCC Camps are - I think they were designed to get Unemployed men back into good health?
