TVA Newsreel: "America prepares. Mighty rivers harnessed by towering dams to the service of peacetime industry, turn their power to the nation's defense. Here in the Tennessee Valley is a mighty power plant, a source of natural energy that is forging modern armor for Uncle Sam. Nearly one million kilowatts flowing in an irresistible stream of power, through a valley protected by mountains from the most daring foes. The strength of over a million horses. In a region that contains one-third of the nation's raw materials required for defense."
