In this exhibit, you can explore different images and pictures that represented the anti-temperance movement more in depth.
This exhibit provides different newspaper clippings that talked about anti-temperance. There were anti-temperance groups across the nation. They were very organized groups who often met up to discuss different matters involving temperance.
When you think of temperance and prohibition, you do not often think about those who fought against it. Some may think it was just a bunch of people who liked their alcohol, but it went way beyond that, and it is important to understand this.
This exhibit will provide key pages from "The Anti-Prohibition Manual." This was a manual written by the "wets" to show the public why national prohibition should never happen. It was also a means to recruit more citizens to their side, rather than the side of pro-prohibition. They highlight many key facts and statistics showing why prohibtion is not in the publics best interest.
