  • 19th amendment
  • "My name is Alan Summers and I'm from New York. It was early fall in 1920 when everything was changed, the 19th amendment was passed starting the prohibition period banning alcohol."
  • Flappers
  • "Have you heard the new amendment yet? It is horrible!"
  • "Speakeasies? Sounds like a good time.."
  • "Hush down for a bit and listen. There are these places called speakeasies where flappers and such go to get alcholic beverages."

  • Speakeasies
  • Alan, having sunk into the nearest Speakeasy was astounded by what he saw, yet he was also enjoying the thrill of simply being there, until he learned of bootleggers such as the infamous Al Capone
  • "Is this prohibition really causing these problems in America..?"
  • In August of 1920 the 19th amendment passed, banning the sale of alcohol leading to the prohibition period
  • Gangsters
  • After Alans time in the speakeasies he pondered on what he had of, these so called Bootleggers. It was a problem in America but now he learned of a new problem, Gangsters
  • Alan Summers finally came to the conclusion that he needed to stop going to speakeasies and that despite that, the prohibition was terrible for America as a whole
  • Despite the amendment many people still found ways to get alcohol via speakeasies providing for a good time for men and the new flappers, women who embraced the  new fashions of the time.

  • In the Prohibition period speakeasies were a place to go get alcohol despite the 19th amendment, with bootleggers smuggling it from places like Canada
  • "You all should give thanks for bootleggers like myself."
  • "I was right, speakeasies are fun and easy to get into....bootlegger?"
  • In the 1920's crime arose to a new high and with it came Gangsters such as the infamous Bonnie and Clyde, Pretty boy Floyd, and Machine gun kelly.
  • "Have you heard the news? Gangsters are striking all over the place!"
  • With the 19th Amendment passed, prohibition was in full effect and continued to do so until 1933, with all it's problems included
