This picture is from the 1920's, and shows a couple of guys by an old Bootleg Still, during the days of prohibition. Prohibition came to an end on March 22, in the year 1933. Roosevelt signed a law making it legal to make and sell beer and wine. Bootlegging continued even after prohibition ended. Even though it was legal to make, sell, and consume alcohol, a heavy tax was levied on it. Bootleg whiskey was untaxed, so it remained popular for a long time.

The 18th amendment banning alcohol in the United States was ratified in 1919 and was repealed in 1933 with the passing of the 21st amendment. How would you feel during prohibition? Would you be for it or against it?

These two anti-prohibition buttons reflect the sentiments of many who opposed the ban on the sale of alcohol from Criminals like Al Capone thrived off of this discontent, distributing alcohol secretly throughout Chicago and other cities.

Labels define a whiskey, not a person.
