Title:
The facts of prohibition in the United States
Description:
The notion of legislating certain behaviors has long divided America. Restricting the sale and consumption of alcohol seems morally justified to some and outlandish to others. Certain forces converged to fight for Prohibition in the early 20th century. They understood that residents in large urban areas would work against them and as this map indicates, state by state they would use a Constitutional amendment to bring out the necessary change to the American landscape, appreciating that even within states, there would be local sensibilities about which strategies to pursue. The story of this battle surrounds the map.
