Carry Nation, The Saloon Smasher


Carry Nation, born in Garrard County, Kentucky, is probably the most recognized name from the temperance movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. As part of her campaign against alcohol, she would march into bars or saloons, occasionally with women of like mind, singing hymns, and praying. She would then proceed to smash up the place with a hatchet.
