The Blue Ridge Parkway (and the All-American Road), a 469-mile strip of land that extends from Virginia to North Carolina, is the most visited National Park in the entire system. The controversy over the construction of this parkway is the focus of a research project that asks groups to examine arguments by those for, those against, and those with conflicted feelings about the project. Using the provided links, groups examine primary and second sources. Individuals then assume the identity of a person involved in the controversy, craft an editorial taking a stance on the project, and detail their rationale.
