Wine over politics might be the best policy with friends. Let your politically active buddies know you’d rather uncork a bottle of red than discuss whatever Congress did this week. Cheers!
Over the course of our history, Americans have engaged in debates about alcohol and its place in our society. Government programs and policies have ranged from promoting drink-related industries to warning of the health dangers of drinking and driving to outright prohibition of alcohol manufacturing and sales. Few issues have generated such passion among citizens and government officials. Alcohol-related records in the holdings of the National Archives--posters, government-created films, patent drawings, artifacts, and petitions--explore the surprising role of the federal government in regulating, promoting, investigating, and prohibiting alcohol production, sales, and consumption.
