Eleanor Charwat's on "Prohibition in the Hudson Valley: Along the Bootleg Trail" Wappingers Historical Socety

Monthly meeting of  the Wappingers Historical Society.  Did you know that during Prohibition the Hudson Valley was part of the Bootleg Trail between Canada and New York City?  Or that New York gangsters Legs Diamond and Dutch Schultz feuded here?  Or what Dutchess County lawmen did with the moonshine they confiscated?

Eleanor is a Poughkeepsie native, who became interested in Prohibition while researching a book about her father, Nathaniel Rubin, a local attorney for 58 years.  She retired as executive director of the Marist College School of Adult Education and is an active community volunteer.
