Last night I posted this question:
The 1920's is associated with the development of many new freedoms; it was a time of restrictions as well. Examine the 18th amendment and prohibition in the 1920's. What was the reasoning and who were the key supporters behind a 'dry' United States?
Here's the answer that I got:
In 1919, the legislators of the States ratified the 18th amendment. During Prohibition, the invention, moving, import, export, and sale of alcoholic beverages were restricted or illegal. Prohibition was supposed to lower crime and corruption, reduce social problems, lower taxes needed to support prisons and poorhouses, and improve health and sanitation in America.
Is this OK?
This looks good, except that you didn't mention the key supporters of prohibition.
All I found was that the legislators ratified the 18th amendment.
This site has more information about the supporters of Prohibition.
