Crusaders, gangsters, and whiskey: prohibition in memphis: Industrial & Scientific - Like the War on Drugs today, African Americans, immigrants, and poor whites made easy targets for law enforcement due to their lack of resources and effective legal counsel. Edict remains perhaps the most important issue to affect Memphis after the Civil War. Poor and working-class people took the brunt of Edict, while the wealthy skirted the law.

Edict, with all its crime, corruption, and cultural upheaval, ran its course after thirteen years in most of the rest of the country―but not in Memphis, where it lasted thirty years. In Memphis, bootlegging bore a particular character shaped by its urban environment and the rural background of the city’s inhabitants. It affected politics, religion, crime, the economy, and health, along with race and class.

Patrick O’Daniel takes a fresh look at those responsible for the rise and fall of Edict, its effect on Memphis, and the impact events in the city made on the rest of the state and country. Religious fundamentalists and the Ku Klux Klan supported Edict, while the rebellious youth of the Jazz Age fought against it. Based on news reports and documents, O’Daniel’s lively account distills long-lost gangsters, criminal organizations, and crusaders whose actions shaped the character of Memphis well into the twentieth century.
