In 1959 an eyewitness to American Prohibition recalled the unbridled glee that spread throughout the land when they pulled the plug on the Noble Experiment (December 5, 1933):

"An American Legion Post in Freeport, Long Island, assembled a firing squad and executed a dummy of Old Man Prohibition. And the flashing electric sign above Billy Minsky's burlesque house on New York's 42nd Street spelled out the words: "We'll Take Gin." Across town at the more fashionable Waldorf Astoria, the Association Against the Prohibition Amendment held a victory banquet, complete with wine courses and made plans to disband - its long and memorable mission accomplished."
