Washington had gone dry ahead of the rest of the nation to “set an example.” And it did — though not in the way temperance activists may have intended. Already, The Post reported a thriving underground of bootleggers and home-brewers in the District. Both would become a nationwide phenomenon soon enough.

Federal agents from the Treasury Department were tasked with enforcing the alcohol ban, alongside local authorities. On the first day of Prohibition, more than 1,500 agents were ready to raid.

The Treasury Department even employed a few female agents who often worked undercover. Daisy Simpson, known in the newspapers as “Lady Hooch Hunter,” was a former drug user who became a federal agent. She made busts until 1925, when women at Treasury were forced to take desk jobs. She quit.

Gangsters were active long before Prohibition, but illicit alcohol sales gave them a massive new revenue stream. Much of the era is characterized by the power and violence of organized crime and the inability of law enforcement to stop it.

After the Great Depression hit in 1929, millions of people advocated for the repeal of the 18th Amendment, arguing that a repeal would create jobs and bring in tax revenue.

There was so much pressure on the government to do something that Prohibition-supporting President Herbert Hoover changed his mind and started to back repeal during his 1932 reelection campaign.

The lame-duck Congress passed the repeal of the 18th Amendment and sent it to the states for ratification. Within weeks of taking office, Roosevelt pushed for the immediate legalization of beer and wine, which went into effect on April 7, 1933.

By November, 36 states had ratified the 21st Amendment, completely repealing the 18th.

Prohibition came to a close on Dec. 5, 1933.
