Historical Society hold meeting

“Moonshining and Bootlegging in Wisconsin’s Holyland” will be the focus of the Plymouth Historical Society’s Annual Meeting featuring a presentation by John (JJ) Jenkins.

From 1920-1933, national Prohibition was the law of the land making any “intoxicating liquors” illegal. Across the United States certain populations adhered to the law while othersscoffed at it. In certain areas the economic benefits inherent in the illicit liquor trade provided a way of life and for agrarian societies, such as the Holyland of Eastern Wisconsin, a much needed influx of cash and activity.

The presentation will focus on the unique activities and opportunities the Holyland experienced during national Prohibition. We will discuss how Prohibition came to fruition in a nation which loved it’s alcohol, why the population of the Holyland was specifically offended, and reflect on a collectionof interviews and sentinel events which have continued to define the memories of a time shrouded in mystery and rumor.

Please join us for an evening of stories and discussion from one of the most overlooked, yet formative, phenomenon in American history on Thursday, March 20th, 2014, 7:00 p.m.;at the First Congregational United Church of Christ 1405 Hwy. 67 south, just south of Hwy. 67 and PP, Plymouth Wisconsin. See you there!
