Temperance and Prohibition

Primary Sources of the Progressive Movement

During this period of social reform, the progressives led a successful crusade to eliminate the manufacturing, distribution, and sale of alcohol. Beyer examines the societal problems caused by alcohol at the time, the fervent anti-liquor advocates such as the Women’s Temperance Crusade, and Carrie Nation. The text and photographs portray the drama of this turbulent period when crime spread during the alcohol ban.
