    Thanks! The whole story is quite sad and disturbing. Government, National Park Service, and TVA taking advantage of poor mountain people and then loading up with environmental propaganda to cover their screwups. You can find the park service report, on the interenet, against building the road to the community and it is almost laughable.

    Also, how the government would take advantage of people and use the WWII war effort as the excuse. In this way you could not argue because you would be seen as against the war effort.

    You can read more information on Proctor in "Fontana; A Pocket History of Appalachia" by Lance Holland.
