    19. Corbin _

      A conspiracy theorist could argue that the Prohibition Act went into effect with the future plan of enacting the Income Tax to compensate for it - while also knowing that Prohobition would be abolished yet alcohol would still be heavily taxed. In effect, two taxes were created and no one noticed because they were too drunk to care. *edit* Also, that same theory could include the Great Depression. With many assets and money being seized from the citizens, it was an all around win-win for the government. All the personal assets regained for pennies on the dollar and two new taxes created!

    34. Iron Head

      My family was bootleggers during the prohibition. One of them got into a shoot-out with prohibition officers while in a car and was shot in the chest point blank with a shotgun. At the time he was a wanted criminal in the Appalachian mountains, by the FBI. His mother told the government he was killed and that she buried him. FBI was informed but they thought he was faking his death. I guess the prohibition officers did not know who he was. So they went and dug up his dead body for confirmation. I know the story sounds crazy and some details might be a little off but that's basically what happened.

    35. JIANNI

      Funny fact: Carrie Nation didn't use a hatchet until her husband made a joke about it. After smashing a few saloons with just rocks, Mr. Nation jokingly told his wife she should use a hatchet to do maximum damage to the places. And Carrie told him, "That is the most sensible thing you have said since I married you."
