I meant to post this yesterday on the official anniversary, however, before I knew it the day was through. Yesterday marked the anniversary of adopting an amendment of prohibition in the United States. Only hours after Boston experienced it’s disastrous Molasses flood, Nebraska became the 36th state to ratify the proposed 18th amendment to the United States Constitution, officially plunging the nation into the famous era of prohibition from alcohol. While Boston’s molasses was largely intended for munitions, part of it was also used for the making of rum- a major Boston based product. Perhaps the flood was portending the direction in which the nation was headed?
