An Interesting Infographic on Prohibition

Whenever I teach a unit about the 1920's in U.S. History, students are interested in prohibition and its impact on crime and culture. This morning I found an interesting infographic titled Prohibition did What?! about the history of legislation related to alcohol in the U.S. The focus of the infographic is on the Volstead Act, but it includes some other information too. The subtitle of the infographic (a beer-googled look) and one of the headings (sloshed by the man) makes it a little questionable for classroom so use your judgement as to whether or not you'll use it. I would probably print it and blot-out those headings.
