Garrett Peck talked about his book The Prohibition Hangover: Alcohol in America from Demon Rum to Cult Cabernet (Rutgers University Press August 5, 2009). While researching and writing this book, Mr. Peck developed a “temperance tour” of the nation’s capitol as a way to learn about the topic and introduce people to his book. Temperance was a 19th and early 20th century movement against alcohol abuse which led to the 18th Amendment prohibiting the sale and distribution of alcohol in the United States. Mr. Peck discussed the causes of prohibition and the repeal of the amendment in 1933 during a tour that began at the Temperance Fountain and ended near the Woodrow Wilson house in Washington, D.C.

A 1933 Universal Newsreel and a portion of a 1952 U.S. Brewer’s Foundation promotional film were shown. Other illustrations and video were shown in the background. close
