An interesting side note on alcohol: many cities in the US believed that alcohol was the sole source of crime, and, on the eve of prohibition, sold their jails.

I blame women.

FYI: It was spear-headed by the League of Women Voters (yes, yes, they couldn't vote, but they tried to get it done while trying to do so.)

watch The Simpsons episode, "Homer vs. The Eighteenth Amendment" it'll tell you all you need to know about prohibition.

Maryland was the only state never to pass state enforcement policy on prohibition. Baltimore businesses continued to produce and sell alcohol. The Chesapeake Bay was also a prime area for bootleggers because it was still legal to make liquor in Maryland.

i need more overall issues, not just facts. like the point of the brochure is to try and get people to join the reform. So i guess I want negative issues about the movement like why should you join it and what not

A lot of the women protested alcohol because their husbands would often come home drunk and abuse them as a result.

alcohol was the mother of all sins. they also didn't like movie theaters because they were "places of temptation". alcohol abuse led to lots of things, which is why they wanted it banned. divorce, child abuse, spousal abuse, dangers at work, higher crime rates, robberies, murders... etc. that led to the 18th amendment which was passed in 1919 banning alcohol. 21st amendment was passed in 1933 saying that the 18th sucked and they want to get drunk again.

just got done with that a couple chapters ago, getting ready to start WW1 next week. right now we're on hawaii, spanish american war, and the panama canal.

Ummmm guys. He's asking about the temperance movement of the 1800's
Not prohibition. 2 different eras. 2 different results.
Temperance movements started in the 1870's due in large part to the depression that followed the U.S. Civil war. Damn if you ain't got a job you gotta do something with your time don't you? Temeperance died out in the 1890's and did not resurrect it's ugly head until our next depression.

Research Carrie Nations. She used to go into bars and bust up bottles with a hatchet. She was also put into jail a lot for this.

Edit: Guy above me, there were two different temperance movements. I know that you think one is prohibition (the later one), but that's simply the name of the amendment passed.

C.C. Deville, what books do you guys use. We're learning the same stuff right now.

Forgiven

And no, it wasn't like the progressive movement.

Well, actually. The 2nd temperance movement was part of the progressive movement I guess, but the one during the 1800s wasn't.

Big red Mcdougal Littel book that says "The Americans" we dont learn out of the book though because we have a different curriculum where we learn by "themes" instead of chapter by chapter, i like it because i dont have to lug that big book around everyday haha

Progressive movement = trustbusting, temperance, reforms.
Temperance simply = no alcohol.

And, you're right. It was right at the turn of the century. But there was another movement, right during or a little after the civil war I think.

It's been a long time since I was in school but if I remember correctly Carrie Nations began her "Assault on Alcohol"( Ya I saw a picture in a bar of her with that slogan on their bandwagon) in 1869. A lot of veterans came home from war and could do nothing else but drink.
Sorry C.C. I can think of nothing for your brochure to encourage people to join that movement. Now if you were writing a brochure against it ....
