Connecticut Goes Dry

  • Published 1 year ago
  • Not Rated

In 1920, the 18th Amendment was enacted banning the sale of alcohol across the country. However, in our "land of steady habits," alcohol consumption was a habit that proved hard to break. In the CPTV original documentary, Prohibition: Connecticut Goes Dry, filmmakers Jennifer Boyd and Sara Conner explore Connecticut's unique role in the prohibition movement, from the early temperance advocates of Litchfield to the lawless rum runners of Long Island Sound. The program explores the creation, rise and fall of prohibition in the state. ORIGINAL BROADCAST: Monday, November 12, 2012 at 9 p.m. on Connecticut Public Television (CPTV).
