Carry A. Nation was a 6 foot tall woman, who called herself a pit bull for Jesus, after her husband died of alcohol poisoning she went on a tirade, carrying a hatchet and, a purse full of rocks, she would go into saloons and, destroy the entire place, she was arrested for this over 32 times, can you imagine sitting in a bar drinking a beer and, a old woman built like a line backer comes in with a hatchet and, a purse full of rocks lol then starts smashing everything in sight. Later in her life she wrote a paper called Hatchetnation. I am watching a show called how booze built America and, this was one of the many crazy and, interesting stories, another interesting note is Carry A. Nation and, some baseball player are said to of made the most noise to get the government to ban alcohol. It did them no good of course, then came the mob, with Al Capone or Lucky Luciano to supply everyone, plus millions of others all over the world, only 18 states even really enforced prohibition at all.
