Excellent documentary that very much speaks of todays issues and the wrong way direction of government. It is true that the answers to the present are in the past.

I enjoyed this very much. Well researched & thorough presentation. Some old jazz music to listen to too.

Outstanding documentary by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, exploring the background of the temperance movement, the mistakes of Prohibition, the societal shifts, and the people of the times. Highly recommended.
