• Prohibition: Prohibition was a period of nearly fourteen years of U.S. history in which the manufacture, sale, and transportation of liquor was made illegal.

    Many people drank because it was hot or because it was cool.They drank when they closed a bargain or when they made new acquaintance.
    The American man started to drink early in life: when they were teenagers and they just stopped when they died.
    When they worked they drank two times in the day, when the bell rang they stopped their work and they drank.
    The prohibition started because many wives and children « were beaten by their father or  husband and they were mistreated or abandoned whithout food or shelter.
    Many associations like the WCTU were created to help these peole.
    So the US governement  proclaimed the Volstead Act in October 1929 to ban alcohol, beer,liquors or any else beverage of the American society.
