NEH on the Road: Spirited, Prohibition in America

Through participation in the “Spirited: Prohibition in America” project, the Upcountry History Museum – Furman University seeks to connect the national story of Prohibition with the Upcountry’s local stories of rumrunners, moonshiners, bootleggers, and prohibition enforcement to inspire visitors to explore and examine this tumultuous time in American history. The project offers a unique opportunity to meld historical scholarship and memorable experiences in ways that empower the public to understand the value of their own stories, forge their individual and group identities, consider the world from different perspectives, and hone their ability to think critically. The project seeks to remind visitors of our common humanity and inspire change by making visitors aware that our choices and actions have the power to shape our future.
