If you are looking for a report concerning the political battles fought on Capitol Hill regarding Prohibition (1919-1933), you can keep looking. The attached VANITY FAIR article is a humorous parody of that dispute between the Drys and Wets as it existed just months before the 'Noble Experiment' began in earnest. By November of 1918, the American newspaper readers had simply overdosed on the redundant writings of assorted war correspondents --and so, with a bit of whimsy, the Vanity Fair writer George S. Chappell sat down to write about that war between these two groups using the same journalistic affectations everyone was so heartily sick of. You will also find a mock military map depicting the faux topography in dispute.
