7:00 pm-9:00 pm
Reinsch Library Auditorium, Marymount University
Historian Dr. Mark Benbow will talk about how Arlington dealt with Prohibition. Being at the doorstep of the nation’s capital with a legal drop of alcohol had its challenges. Find out how Arlingtonians evaded or enforced the law from rum runners to backyard stills.
This program is free and open to the public. It will take place in the Reinsch Library auditorium on the Main Campus of Marymount University. This event is part of a monthly series of public programs sponsored by the Arlington Historical Society and Marymount University’s Department of History and Politics.
