hey john, why is everyone gathered in the main square yelling and screaming?
are you kidding me! This is a tragedy!
We want beer!
You shall give our beer back!
Oh, Scarlett, you haven't heard? The temperance groups convinced the government to forbid the production and consumption of all alcohol! We're all furious! This madness needs to end!
I cant live with out my beer
Oops, I must be in the wrong place... this isn't a Spanish dance class is it?
We did the right thing by forming a temperance group
Yea, the banning of alcohol should decrease the crime rate, child abuse and wife abuse!
I just hope that the illegalizing of alcohol will be permanent.
And, the best part of all is that men would actually spend their paychecks on their family instead of alcohol!

I missed this yummy wine
WOO HOO!! BEER FOR LIFE
In the early 1920's, a temperance group convinced the government to forbid the production and consumption of alcohol. Everyone was shocked and angry. People even started to protest.
This was the best idea I've ever had
The temperance group believed that this decision was best for everyone and would benefit everyone in many ways
But the people disagreed... greatly. Luckily for the people, the temperance group couldn't stop them from drinking. If someone wanted a drink they would need a password to get into bars just to make sure the people walking in wouldn't be anyone from the government .
How did they get all of this alcohol when it was forbidden to be made you may ask? Well, a man by the name of Rocco Perri made MILLIONS of dollars from selling illegal alcohol.
He lived in Ontario and started his business in Hamilton. He used turnips to hide and ship across the alcohol to the united states.
