One of the more fascinating times in the history of the United States will be on display at the McLean County Museum tomorrow.

 

2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the outlawing of alcohol sales in the United States and 100 years ago this year, the ratification of the 18th amendment took place. Candace Summers indicates she'll be doing a presentation on the year leading up to the complete outlaw of alcohol sales in the United States.

 

 

Chicago's crime scene during the prohibition is well documented but Summers says central Illinois had it's own things happening as it relates to manufacturing and selling alcohol.

 

 

The program starts at 6:30 pm at the McLean County Museum at 200 North Main Street in Bloomington. It is free to attend.
