About the event

Temperance  advocates celebrated victory when America  went dry in 1920.  For a  short time, the noble experiment appeared to curb the ills associated  with imbibing alcohol.  However, American drinking culture moved to  private clubs, home production, and overtly shady acquisition.   This  program will lead you through an assortment of prohibition and  post-repeal day resources which will help demystify your ancestor's  relationship with alcohol from 1920-1933.  Second lecture in a two-part series
