Sons of Temperance


Author(s):
Abstract:
The temperance movement began in the state in the early 1800s as a way to control intemperance among the citizens. There were a number of small, but powerful societies in the period leading up to the Civil War. The most important of these groups within the state was the Sons of Temperance, which organized in 1844, the year after the national one formed. The society came to an end when the group entered politics.
