From Temperance to Prohibition (Part 1)

November 1 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

 

Part one of a new two-part lecture series at Harvard Diggins Library. Presented by Michael Rehberg, lead interpreter at Black Point Estates and Gardens, part of the Wisconsin Historical Society. Discover our early struggle over “the devil’s drink” from the Mayflower to Walworth County Temperance Societies and early laws. Meet the big three local advocates, all a prelude to the “great noble experiment” of 1919 to 1933. What will Prohibition bring… besides a disrespect for the law?

Masks are required inside the Library. Free and open to the public. Registration is required to attend. To sign up, email adultservices@harvard-diggins.org or call 815-943-4671.
