US History Repeated

The Progressive Era Part 5 - Prohibition - 18th Amendment

March 17, 2022

Well well, we get to our 50th episode and this may be one of our personal favorites. 

We discuss Prohibition, and this one hits home. our great uncle was the owner of two speakeasies in Brooklyn back in the day. We get to immortalize our Great Uncle Rocco (Robert) "Nap" LaSalle, who passed at the age of 99 back in 1992. 

We cover the Volstead Act and how it came to pass, we discover how prohibition ended, we interview Travis from the Prohibition Museum in Savannah, GA, and more.

 

There is always more to learn. Thank you for listening and tell your friends about us. 

Check out Sweatsedo.com and get yourself a cozy velour tracksuit, and be certain to check out JImmy LaSalle's books on Amazon - Immortals Revelations, The Naughty List, or for the business person, Unified Marketing Strategy.
