The Missouri Women's Christian Temperance Union

Carry A. Nation (1846 – 1911)

Carrie Amelia Nation was a leader and activist in the days before women could vote in America. She believed that drunkenness was the cause of many problems in society. Nation fought with fierce and witty words to make her case that people should not drink alcohol or use tobacco. She gained national attention when she started using violence. Though she was jailed many times for “smashing” saloons, Carry Nation remained opposed to drinking and smoking throughout her life. Her crusade against drinking contributed to the passing of the Eighteenth Amendment.

Oddly enough, she wasn't against horse racing. She was from Kentucky, so of course horse racing was all right.
