sell, transport or liquor. Prohibition lasted from 1920 to 1933 when it was repealed by the 21st Amendment SUPPORT FOR PROHIBITION Reformers had long believed alcohol led to crime, child & wife abuse, and accidents Supporters were

largely from the rural south and west Legislating Morality Problems: Carrie Nation, an aggressive Temperance advocate often entered

private property to destroy alcohol paraphernalia. There is a now a bar named for her in San Jose. Never consistently enforced Bootlegging: illegal sale of alcohol Bars turned into speakeasies, secret nightclubs Corruption of police and government officials

Expensive to prosecute Alcohol consumption increased 300% Poster supporting prohibition

SPEAKEASIES AND BOOTLEGGERS Many Americans did not believe drinking was a sin Most immigrant groups were not willing to give up drinking To obtain liquor, drinkers went underground to hidden saloons known as speakeasies People also bought liquor from bootleggers

who smuggled it in from Canada, Cuba and the West Indies All of these activities became closely affiliated with Speakeasies Once the alcohol had been confiscated, it had to be destroyed. Most often kegs and bottles were broken at the raid site and poured down city gutters. Just as often, conscientious, lawabiding citizens were waiting down the street with empty jars, bottles, and buckets to collect the wasted moonshine.

problems than it solved What problems did it cause? The 21st Amendment finally repealed Prohibition in 1933 Science and Religion Clash A. Fundamentalists believe that the
