When the Constitution declared on January 16, 1920, that Americans could no longer buy or sell alcoholic drink, it sparked the wildest, booziest years in our nation's history. Everyone saw in Prohibition an unparalleled license to get rich. Here is the full story of those 13 years of temperance, telling how and why it all happened.
Prohibition is an era usually covered in a general treatise on American history: choose this title to receive much more depth and detail than most; especially if it's report facts which are needed for a school paper. Original research contributes to an in-depth survey of the origins, politics, and individuals involved in the Prohibition era's events.
