Every part of your life—the words you speak, the ideas you share—can be traced to our history, but how well do you really know the stories that made America? We’ll take you to the events, the times, and the people that shaped our nation. First, we travel back to the story that loomed over twentieth-century America more than any other: the Cold War. How do you fight a war with just ideas? Then, we’ll go back a little further, to the only time a constitutional amendment has been repealed: Prohibition. By outlawing alcohol, America saw a rise in crime, sin, vice, and, ironically, alcohol consumption.
