Foner talks briefly about the banning of liquor. He does not really go into depth about why the government decided to make it illegal to have liquor. Foner also does not show how there were many people who protested this new amendment. He makes it seem as if this law was just made and no one said anything. Foner makes it seem very insignificant.

2. What was the real reason for banning intoxicating liquor in the first place?
