The Great Depression is often, well, depressing! This PowerPoint offers an insight into a little known subject even to those who grew up in East Texas. Students will learn about the oil boom in East Texas that occurred in the early years of the Depression as well as the third worst tragedy in Texas State history behind the Great Galveston Hurricane and the Texas City Disaster. It is something that was shared with me in high school and I feel the need to pass on to my students. I encourage you to do the same.
I also encourage you to visit the website to learn more.
