Project Description

 

The Folklorist: The Great New England Hurricane of 1938

It was a day just like any other. The sun was out, not a cloud in the sky. But the beautiful day soon turned dark as a great hurricane rolled through, causing massive destruction on an unsuspecting and unprepared New England population.
