ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – A traveling exhibit on the prohibition era is coming to St. Louis. It’s called “American Spirits: The Rise And Fall Of Prohibition.”
Among the items you can see, a hatchet used to bust up saloons, the verdict sheet from al Capone’s trial, and lawman Eliot Ness’ sworn oath of office.
The alcohol ban lasted from 1920 to 1933. No word on the St. Louis location for the exhibit.
