It's not always the buildings or the photographs or any of the other ob-
jects that we can hold in our hands that make up our history. Sometimes
it's the words, the inflections, the phrasing, and seeing the spark in
people's eyes as they tell their stories that makes history exciting and
relevant. And history doesn't necessarily have to mean Stephen F. Aus-
tin or James Travis; regular working folks-the ones who tilled the soil,
built our bridges, worked in factories, and entertained us-also have
stories to tell. Their words are the essence of oral history programs that
are in place around the Lone Star State.
Calisthenics was part of the daily regimen for Civilian Conservation Corps members. Enrollees are shown here at Camp Bullis in San Antonio. Image from
