Banning bottles up
"Temperance movement just what the doctor order"
This movement was against alcohol trying to banned alcohol in a era were alcoholism was becoming so big in the end of the 18 century. Was mostly led by women and wanted to make a change in the many lives of other women that were being affected because of alcohol.
Most of the man right after they got out of work would go to bars and drink when they would come home they would become very violent hit they wives and cause great damage to them and the family for ever. Another reason was that most of the man would spend their little savings or their pay money on alcohol.
A goal was to stop drunkenees because it led to abuse, poverty, crime , and disorder. Another one was to limit the selling of alcohol and to revive the good morals of faith.
The movement was successfull in sending good morals and spreading their words out and eventually they got what they wanted.
- Well you yourself could be a alcoholic
- That one day are movement is heard and we win
- That one day alcohol is stopped selling and being consumed.
