Description

Prohibition in 1920 made the production and sale of liquor illegal. Bootleggers, mostly poor farmers, brewed moonshine to make money -- a skill passed down from father to son in some rural families in the Carolinas. Some moonshine runners transported the illegal liquor in supercharged cars. Both federal and state officials aggressively pursued the moonshiners. The photograph shows Deputy Sheriff Leonard "Jug"Howard (right) with apprehended moonshine.
