  1. Example Student November 2012 Blame it on the Alcohol

  2. Why I chose this topic: • I knew there was a lot of information on the topic. • It was an interesting subject. • The topic easily affected the areas of government, culture, and economy.

  3. Surprising Fact: In the early 1800’s, Americans drank more than five gallons of pure alcohol per person per year, and currently the figure is about two gallons per adult (Carlson 35).

  4. Surprising Fact: The Ku Klux Klan was in support of the Eighteenth Amendment (Rogers 26).

  5. Surprising Fact: Annual sales of bootleg liquor were estimated at $3.6 billion in 1926, which is roughly $43.4 billion in 2010 dollars. This sum was about the same as the federal budget that year (Rogers 28).

  6. Skill The most important skill that I learned was how to find reliable research and efficiently organize my thoughts and main ideas on paper.
