Just started a book called Spirits of Just Men. It's a history of White Lightening, moonshine, and the scallywags who helped give the gov'ment fits in the 30s.
I don't know if it's a good read yet, too early to tell (started it on the train this morning), but had to share the quote. Some of that old time religion will do a soul right.
So let's toast to the teetotalers. Here's to you, Rutherford B. Hayes.
