The legacy of Prohibition is one of failure.

But it was also an era of great consequence, prompting federal criminal law enforcement and the expansion of the U.S. prison system. Revisit this defining moment in American history to see how it shaped the course of the 20th century and how its impact still reverberates to this day.
