The Prohibitionist and the Bootlegger (Watch on Demand)
Time: 7pm - 8:30pm
Some fascinating people were part of the battle to dry up the United States. And after Prohibition took effect, to sell illegal liquor.
In this animated reader's theater, Carrie Nation tells about her hatchet-wielding saloon battles. "Pussyfoot" Johnson describes how he lost an eye for the cause. Billy Sunday shares how he left pro-baseball to be the greatest anti-liquor evangelist of his era. George Remus, king of the bootleggers who operated out of Cincinnati, lets us know how he came to his life of crime and how he reaped the rewards before it all unraveled.
Register now to receive an invitation to the exclusive video premier on YouTube, October 22 at 7pm. (And a bonus souvenir to mark the 100th anniversary of Prohibition, mailed to your home!)
