EXHIBITION
Teetotalers & Moonshiners: Prohibition in Virginia, Distilled

Monday, April 03, 2017 — Saturday, December 02, 2017
Place: Exhibition Gallery & Lobby, Free

Which Virginia county is the Moonshine Capital of the World? The Library of Virginia's upcoming exhibition, Teetotalers & Moonshiners: Prohibition in Virginia, Distilled, will reveal that and more as it explores the impact of Prohibition on the Old Dominion. On November 1, 1916, Virginia's breweries and distilleries closed their doors as the state began a grand experiment in Prohibition. From that date until 1933, state inspectors and federal agents attempted to stem the flow of illicit alcohol to a thirsty populace. Newsreels of still-busting raids, music from the Jazz Age, and vintage stills will complement the archival record of the exploits of Virginia's Prohibition Commission. This exhibition is supported in part by the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control and the National Alcohol Beverage Control Association.
