Speakeasy Raided at Brooksville in 1901


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 12/24/1901.

Another Speakeasy Raided

Report reaches us that enraged citizens raided another speakeasy at Brooksville one day last week, destroying booze, property and all else in sight - a la Carrie Nation raid. However bad, they didn't do too much. If all the speakeasies in the county were treated with the same kind of a dose, the county would be much better for it.
