Spirited: Prohibition in America explores the tumultuous years of 1920 to 1933, showing visitors what led to the passage of the 18th Amendment, how the “wets” fought back, and how Prohibition proved to be much more than a constitutional hiccup.
This exhibition is made possible by NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Spirited: Prohibition in America is based on the exhibition American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition, organized by the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, PA, in collaboration with Daniel Okrent, author of Last Call: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition.
