Storyboard Text

  • Enforcing Prohibition was becoming expensive and difficult.
  • And when the country entered the Great Depression, the drinking industry seemed like a promising way to increase revenue and create jobs.
  • When FDR was elected in 1932, he called for the repeal of Prohibition. The 21st Amendment was ratified in 1933 and ended Prohibition.
  • What America needs is a drink!
  • NO ALCOHOL SOLD HERE
  • Some states continued to ban the sale of alcohol up until 1966.
  • The Prohibition led to a rise in "criminal" activity that was targeted at the working and poorer classes. It was also a result of Christianity in America.
  • Luckily today, America has made a solid recovery from not being able to drink for a decade and the alcohol industry continues to thrive!
