American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition

Description: 

Created by the National Constitution Center, American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition is the first comprehensive exhibition about America’s most colorful and complex constitutional hiccup.

American Spirits brings the Prohibition era vividly to life through over 100 rare artifacts including flapper dresses, temperance propaganda, a 1927 Ford Model T coupe, and original ratification copies of the 18th and 21st Amendments.

The exhibit also contains re-created speakeasy where visitors can learn to Charleston and explore the fashion, music, and culture of the Roaring '20s.

American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition is created by the National Constitution Center - Philadelphia, PA, and is made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor.

This exhibit is hosted at the Bullock State History Museum in Austin, Texas and will run from September 2, 2017 - January 7 2018.
