Farwest Travel on Saloons glutted the cities, most visibly in the slums, and moved west with the multitudes of young, aimless men who found nothing much to do but toss back whiskey until they were bungey, crack’d, gold-headed, wet, dagg’d, lappy, or moon-eye’d. A National Prohibition Party formed an alliance with the Women’s Christian Temperance Union, with momentum from the woman suffrage movement. In 1919 the Anti-Saloon League pushed through the 18th Amendment to the U. S. Constitution (repealed in 1933). National Prohibition was law, and nearly 200,000 saloons were destroyed. Consumption (and liver cirrhosis) fell in the early years of Prohibition, especially among the poor. Farwest Travel 2016.
