• A Thousand Thirsty Beaches: Smuggling Alcohol from Cuba to the South during Prohibition

    Lisa Lindquist Dorr tells the story of the vast smuggling network that brought high-end distilled spirits and, eventually, other cargoes (including undocumented immigrants) from Great Britain and Europe through Cuba to the United States between 1920 and the end of Prohibition. Because of their proximity to liquor-exporting islands, the numerous beaches along the southern coast presented ideal landing points for smugglers and distribution points for their supply networks. From the warehouses of liquor wholesalers in Havana to the decks of rum runners to transportation networks heading northward, Dorr explores these operations, from the people who ran the trade to the determined efforts of the U.S. Coast Guard and other law enforcement agencies to stop liquor traffic on the high seas, in Cuba, and in southern communities. In the process, she shows the role smuggling played in creating a more transnational, enterprising, and modern South.

  • WHISKEY AND BLOOD: The Story of Four Louisiana Law Enforcement Officers Killed by Bootleggers During Prohibition

    A naked killer flees from police, a shootout on Main Street, a fight between police and bootleggers on the running board of a fast-moving Ford Model T, and courtroom drama which went all the way to the United States Supreme Court. The adoption of the Eighteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution spawned an era of lawlessness. Bootleggers and law enforcement officers fought what seemed like a never ending battle, and many people died as a result. In the middle of the prohibition era, four Louisiana officers were killed in the line of duty while enforcing prohibition laws in a two week period. Whiskey and Blood is the shocking but true story of the events leading up to the deaths of officers Neill Yarborough, Sample Toms, Sam Duhon and W.E. Collins, and the aftermath which followed.

  • Schooner Sail to Starboard: The US Navy vs. Blockade Runners in the Western Gulf of Mexico (Denbigh Shipwreck Project Publication)

    "The ships carried cotton to Havana and manufactured goods to the Confederacy. The problem was the Union heavily blockaded the area, and even the fast steamship Denhigh, now part of an underwater archeological site, was in peril of losses in trade the south could ill afford. Independent scholar Block turns from the Atlantic seaboard, where most accounts of the Union Navy's blockade are set, to the area west of the Mississippi River on the Gulf of Mexico. The result is a close description the blockade and blockade-running from Galveston to western Louisiana, the coast of Texas, and ports in Alabama and Florida. He pays close attention to the accounts of officers and sailors on both sides and provides excellent maps, illustrations and photographs. This was originally published in 1997 under another title and has been updated with new appendices, figures and introduction."
