From Alcohol Prohibition to Regulation

1,183 views

Published on

The Alcohol Prohibition, so-called “The Noble Experiment” by President Hoover, was
implemented throughout the Federal Union from January 1920 until March 1933. These
thirteen years saw the apogee of a powerful political movement, which started in the late
17th century. By the end of the 19th century, this movement was behind the shutdown of
saloons, the implementation of local temperance laws, then the 1920’s Prohibition of
alcohol on a national scale.
