It began with the best of intentions. Worried about the effects of alcohol on American families, mothers and civic leaders started... a movement to outlaw drinking in public places. Over time, their protests, petitions, and activism paid off?when a Constitional Amendment banning the sale and consumption of alcohol was ratified, it was hailed as the end of public drunkenness, alcoholism, and a host of other social ills related to booze. Instead, it began a decade of lawlessness, when children smuggled (and drank) illegal alcohol, the most upright citizens casually broke the law, and a host of notorious gangsters entered the public eye.
