39 Temperance ActThe temperance movement was marked by an undercurrent of ethnic and religious hostility.Some of the first advocates were people of Anglo-Saxon heritage who associated alcohol with the growing number of Catholic immigrants from Ireland and the European continent.Supposedly, the Catholics were loud and boisterous as a result of too much drinking.According to these activists, the consumption of alcohol was responsible for many personal and societal problems, including unemployment, absenteeism in the workplace, and physical violence.
40 Temperance actCongress enacted the Lever Act of 1917 (40 Stat. 276) to outlaw the use of grain in the manufacture of alcoholic beverages, and many state and local governments passed laws prohibiting the distribution and consumption of alcohol.The Temperance Movement began in the Nineteenth Century.It had an unprecedented agreement to reform the agitation.They accepted the consumption of alcoholic beverages. It was an attack of the ignited popular enthusiasm.This all took place in the United Sates.
41 Women's GroupsGroups such as the Women's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) and the Anti-Saloon League were at the forefront of the onslaught on alcohol.Members of these groups spoke publicly in favor of Prohibition and lobbied elected officials for laws banning the consumption of alcohol.Some of the more active members disrupted business at saloons and liquor stores
