This Conservation and capitalism: Focus on Primary Sources - Driving through time: The digital Blue Ridge Parkway lesson plan also includes:

“Is it possible to be both a conservationist and a capitalist?” The often conflicting values of these two groups are brought into sharp focus as learners examine the battles that took place over the construction of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Especially contentious, was the debate over the Grandfather Mountain link. Using primary and secondary sources, groups of young historians consider the actions of Hugh Morton, owner of the land along the proposed route, and also reflect on his motives.
