Prohibition was the 13 year period when it was illegal to manufacture, sell, or transport liquor in the U.S.  Linda was able to speak with the children of moonshiners and bootleggers to discover why their fathers decided to get involved in this illegal activity.  Al Capone was in Iowa.  There were murders in Iowa over alcohol.  Linda will discuss how this impacted Iowa, and have information on the Nevada area locally.
