Prohibition was the 13 year period of time when it was illegal to manufacture, sell, or transport liquor in the U.S. This included Iowa.  So, when then did Iowa farmers begin making moonshine during this time?  Des Moines was known as Little Chicago at one time, based on the liquor activities.  Al Capone was in Iowa; there were murders in Iowa; and gunfights also.  Whatever went on nationwide occurred in Iowa also.  Linda has been able to speak with the children of moonshiners and bootleggers and shares their memories.  She will also have instances of moonshining or bootlegging in the Van Meter area.
