Which of the following events lasted a total of 13 years, 10 months, 18 days, 17 hours, and 32 minutes?
The 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution banned the manufacture, transportation and sale of alcholic beverages and ushered in a period in American history known as Prohibition. Prohibition officially went into effect on January 17, 1920. The nationwide moratorium on alcohol would stay in place for the next 13 years, at which point a general disenchantment with the policy led to its disbandment at the federal level by the 21st Amendment. Prohibition lasted a total of 13 years, 10 months, 19 days, 17 hours and 32.5 minutes.
