Prohibition in Iowa with Linda McCann

2022-05-04 14:18:43

Join Iowa historian and author Linda McCann as she shares her stories on Prohibition in Iowa.

Prohibition was the period of time in U.S. history when it was illegal to manufacture, sell or transport liquor in the U.S. So, why then did Iowa farmers turn to using their corn to produce liquor? Linda spoke with the children of moonshiners and bootleggers and shares their memories. Linda will have specific instances of Creston and prohibition activities. She will have copies of all her books available for purchase.
