On January 17, 1920, a new day dawned for most of the USA as the 18th
Amendment went into effect. Americans could no longer manufacture,
sell, or transport alcoholic beverages. The Temperance movement took Texas early but now had an impact on
the rest of the US from organized crime to underground bars to fashion
of the day.
