December 5, 1933: Prohibition Ends
On this day in 1933, prohibition ended with the ratification of the 21st Amendment, which achieved the mandatory three-fourths majority of states’ approval with support from Utah, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.
Subsequently, the 18th Amendment was repealed after it was passed during the prohibition and temperance movements in the early 19th century. This activism initially stemmed from the concern about the effects of alcohol abuse.
Check out a video collection from Ken Burns’s Prohibition film to discover the rise and fall of the prohibition era.
