Alcohol Card Set


This popular color card set quotes an Ingersoll speech on alcohol to present a blunt 19th century temperance message. Though the quote is authentic, this presentation greatly distorts Ingersoll's ideas on temperance, which were actually quite moderate. Though critical of the social effects of hard liqour, Ingersoll was a wine fancier who always served the grape when entertaining.

"Wine is a fireside, whiskey a conflagration," he once said.
