EICC/SCC When Sunday Came to Town: Billy Sunday and the Saloon Keepers of Muscatine, Iowa
January 13 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
“When Sunday Came to Town: Billy Sunday and the Saloon Keepers of Muscatine, Iowa” is a presentation about a period in American history when communities underwent dramatic and sometimes violent struggles over saloons and alcohol. In 1907 the most famous itinerant preacher in America, Billy Sunday, descended on Muscatine for a five-week revival in which he daily lambasted the saloon and saloonkeepers. Muscatine had a large working-class population and quite a few saloons, and saloonkeepers and their patrons did not take Sunday’s visit well. This presentation will explore the drama that unfolded in Muscatine as a result and will consider larger issues that were playing out across the nation. $10.00
