Prohibition in America’s history lasted from 1920 to 1933. Bootlegging is quite romanticized but was really a dangerous operation as criminal gangs vied for territorial control. January 17th 1920 was the first day it became illegal to purchase alcoholic beverages in the US. Interestingly it was never illegal to ‘consume’ alcohol.
