Interview: prohibition in Vermont

Print More

(Steve Delaney) Back in the 1920 when federal prohibition took effect, Vermont was right in the middle of a tug of war between those opposed to alcohol, and those determined to get it – usually from Canada, although the state had its quota of home distillers and moonshiners as well.

Tuesday night at the Vermont History Center in Barre, there will be an evening devoted to the prohibition era in Vermont. It’s co-sponsored by the New England Press, which has just published “Rumrunners and Revenooers: Prohibition in Vermont.” Christopher Bray is managing editor of New England Press, and will be in Barre Tuesday evening. Chris Bray, welcome to Morning Edition.
