"Prohibition ranks among America's most vivid historic epochs. Yet the era of flappers and jazz is also curiously Oz-like. The drinking ban dominated the American social and cultural conversation between 1920 and 1933. Then one day the country awoke as if from a dream to find all traces of it gone, save for a few bootlegged bottles that washed up at local historical society museums, flotsam on history's beach." This article presents the author's views on the smuggling of banned liquor and his quest to find traces of the lost era of smuggled booze. Wayne Curtis is a frequent contributor to "The American Heritage."
