Did the temperance movement led to the violence in bleeding Kansas?
Temperance was not an issue in bleeding Kansas. At the time, the temperance movement was still mostly concentrated in urban areas. Kansas during the period of "Bleeding Kansas" most certainly was NOT urban. "Bleeding Kansas", as it was called by Horace Greeley of the NY Tribune, was a proxy war between Northern and Southern states focused almost entirely over the question of whether Kansas would be a "free" or "slave" state.
How successful was the temperance movement?
Initially, the Temperance movement had support from Protestant evangelicals, especially those who associated alcoholism with the newly-arrived Catholic immigrant communities (The anti-immigrant Know-Nothing Party was staunchly pro-Temperance). Temperance advocates were often women, who could see their husbands drink away their wages, or become abusive when drunk. Therefore, the Temperance movement really rose to prominence during and after the First World War, when women had to fill traditionally male roles when the men went off to war. Immediately following WWI, the 18th Amendment was passed, banning the sale or possession of alcohol in the US. While Prohibition was largely ineffective, getting the 18th passed at all was a massive accomplishment for Temperance, especially in a country which has always enjoyed its alcohol. Temperance also scored many victories at the local level, as "dry counties" sprung up across the country. Some jurisdictions are still "dry"; alcohol is prohibited there. Many areas still prohibit sale of alcohol on Sundays; this was also a policy which was enacted with Temperance support. The successes of the movement, then, are impressive, but limited by the fact that Americans just enjoy drinking much more than Temperance advocates ever counted on, and that's not necessarily a bad thing, it's just how we are.
Asked in Prohibition
Why the temperance movements wanted prohition?
The reason the Temperance movents wanted prohibition was because they saw alcohol as the main problem with society. Temperance movements were widespread during the 18th and 19th centuries. Prohibition eventually was created and then was repealed shortly after, after the government saw a spike in crime.
Asked in Ku Klux Klan
Are there any female KKK members?
During the 1920s, women had an auxiliary known as Women of the Ku Klux Klan (WKKK), with the same offices as the men. Daisy Douglas Barr was the Imperial Empress (leader) of the WKKK of Indiana and seven other states with about 250,000 members. The WKKK often worked closely with, and shared many members with, the Woman's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU)
