Much of Oklahoma's land was destroyed due to overgrazing and the effect of this was soil erosion, or the "Dust Bowl".
As a result of the Dust Bowl many civilians lost precious items, land, and money. This also caused much of Roosevelt's New Deal to deal with conservation of Land.
One of the New Deal agencies was the Civilian Conservation Corps or the CCC. The CCC put millions of young men to work in conservation-related jobs in the U.S. Forest Service,the Soil Conservation Service, and the national parks.
The Stock Market crash was another devastating blow of the Great Depression and was another thing that was supposed to be fixed by the New Deal.
In 1932 Franklin Roosevelt was elected and he created the New Deal in 1933 to help the country to be restored and for commodities to be bought and sold again.
