Mines", corners a little rubbed or bumped, small nicks on the spine, a very good copy. Autobiography of the Kentucky-born rapid temperance advocate best known for attacking establishments that served alcohol with a hatchet, she changed her name from Carrie to "Carry A. Nation" so it could be used as a slogan and trademarked it. Widowed from an alcoholic husband, she was remarried to a minister and started a branch of the WCTU in Kansas, and became increasingly radicalized. Her antics were notorious, and in some sense she helped lay the groundwork for Prohibition. . (Inventory #: 408848)
