Timeline

1920 - In the year that Bess M Sussman was born, the Volstead Act became law. Formally called the National Prohibition Act, the Volstead Act enabled law enforcement agencies to carry out the 18th Amendment. It said that "no person shall manufacture, sell, barter, transport, import, export, deliver, or furnish any intoxicating liquor except as authorized by this act" and defined intoxicating liquor as any beverage containing more than 0.5% alcohol by volume.

1941 - By the time she was 21 years old, on December 7th, the Japanese attacked the military base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
