When alcohol was banned in the United States, many thought America was going to become a more civilized place. Instead, Prohibition would fuel America’s desire for alcohol even more, leading to rampant criminal activity throughout the country in order to fuel the country's desires. At the center of all this criminal activity was South Florida. In this program, Jonathan Axler will discuss, rumrunners, gangsters, corrupt officials, pirates and more.
