Prohibition in Washington, D.C. -- Garrett Peck

Staff Pick

The history of American prohibition has long been linked to major cities like New York and Chicago, leaving the rich story of the DC temperance movement long overlooked until now. Local historian Garrett Peck takes readers on a tour of the city, beginning at the usually forgotten Temperance Fountain and snaking a path through government buildings, spectacular mansions, and city squares that tell the story of just exactly how dry we weren’t. Many of these sights still stand today and I encourage you to grab a beer and take a step back in time to one of our nation’s most famous failed experiments.
