A special NEH on the Road Traveling Exhibition.  In a tumultuous era spanning 13 years, Americans could no longer manufacture, sell, or transport intoxicating beverages.

Spirited: Prohibition in America brings visitors back to this period of flappers and suffragists, bootleggers and temperance lobbyists, and real-life legends, such as Al Capone and Carry Nation.
