This anti-prohibition button has the popular "We Want Beer" slogan as its message. Many Americans shared this sentiment, including US troops coming back from foreign wars to discover one of their favorite freedoms had been taken away. Prohibition was mandated in the US in 1920 by the Eighteenth Amendment to the Constitution and repealed in 1933 with the ratification of the Twenty-first Amendment.
