    One of the central facets of the Roaring Twenties was Prohibition – the banning of alcohol. Read Percy Andreae, “A Glimpse Behind the Mask” and Richmond Hobson speech supporting Prohibition, then write a paragraph that addresses the following:

    In a paragraph for each, answer the following:

    • Can you think of a current issue that looks similar to Prohibition? Compare and contrast the current issue you picked with Prohibition. How are they similar, how are they different?
      • Be prepared to discuss this in class.
