Prohibition in Eastern Iowa
This book looks at the 13 year span of time known popularly as "Prohibition" through the lens of Eastern Iowa townspeople and others. From the farmers who grew the corn used in making illegal liquor, to the bootleggers who trafficked it and the gangsters who sold it, Eastern Iowa saw its fair share! Read excerpts of interviews with regular people who were swept up in the craziness, and about gun battles on two lane highways. Even if you know something about Prohibition, you will be surprised to read how this period in our national history transpired in, and impacted, Iowa.
