The Valley of the Tennessee

The Valley of the Tennessee is a film showing the hardships of agriculture before the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) came in and built many dams to help prevent the problems of flooding, erosion, and poor irrigation. Before the TVA built its many dams there was a lot of farms, houses, and lives lost due to flooding. With the building of the dams and educating of the farmers in the Tennessee River Valley, the TVA helped better the area for generations to come.
