Rum Runners and Temperance Tantrums

The 18th Amendment made it illegal to manufacture, sell, or transport intoxicating liquors and it took effect on January 17, 1920. That, however, did not eliminate the problem! Bootleggers and rum runners thrived in Anoka County and Minnesota even before prohibition went nationwide in 1920. This program looks at the battle over booze, illegal and otherwise, that divided communities.

Saturday, May 4th at 2:00 p.m.
