The Prohibition was another time of great change in the 1920's. The Prohibition was a ratification of the 18th amendment which banned the manufacture, transportation and sale of intoxicating liquors. The Prohibition is a part of the 1920's change because this was something new that changed everything for the people who drank beer and the manufacturers who produced the beer. In document A in the prohibition it states that "Alcohol poisons and kills; abstinence and prohibition saves lives and safeguard health." America was tying to take care of people from intoxication because they declare that alcohol poisons and kills. There were big punishments if people consumed or produced alcohol from long jail time to big fines or to even a death sentence. They government took the prohibition serious and if you didn't obey you would be punished. Which with new laws you would have a lot of protesters who wanted alcohol to not be banned. This is also another reason why the 1920's was a time of great change and innovation.
Some may argue that the 1920's was a time of back to normalcy. I understand why they would say that due to the scopes trail, and because of immigration. The scopes trail was about banning the teaching of evolution in schools because they would think that it would infect the minds of their children. Which this is why they banned the teaching of evolution in schools. Immigration could also be return to normalcy because they wanted nobody to come in to America because they would of taken their jobs. Which can be seen as a return to normalcy. However this argument is incorrect because the Americans gained the Harlem Renaissance in which the African Americans use their artistic skills and music to demonstrate who they really are. Also America gained rights for women which women have been fighting for years for. But the fight was worth it and now women are able to vote. America also had the prohibition which was a huge change because they said that alcohol poisons and kills. In which all these reasons sound more like a time of great change and innovation instead of a time of going back to normalcy. This is why the 1920's was time of great change and innovation.
