Storyboard Text

  • In the early 1800's, families struggle to stay together as a result of alcohol abuse. This story explains the growth of the temperance movement, specifically in Massachusetts in 1813.
  • The work day is finally over, I am going to head to the bar before I get home.
  • Many men would leave work and go to a bar before heading home. Here they would drink so extensively, that they would become intoxicated.
  • I should get home soon, but a few drinks won't hurt!
  • Many men and some women became abusive towards their families and loved ones.
  • It was just a few drinks. I'm fine. How dare you yell at me!
  • Where were you! You look terrible.
  • Families had no choice but to kick out their intoxicated loved ones for their safety. They did not want to risk being abused.
  • I can't believe she's kicking me out!
  • By 1833, there were 6,000 societies strengthening the Temperance Movement in the U.S. Abused families joined the protest in hopes of stopping alcohol abuse.
  • We have to stand together and ban alcohol!
  • The Temperance Movement made a temporary change by ratifying the 18th Amendment in 1919, which banned intoxicating liquors until 1933, when the 21st Amendment ended the ban. By the mid-1800s, the American Temperance Movement Society, a group against alcohol abuse, had grown to include over 200,000 people.
