June 2, 1851 - The Maine Law (or "Maine Liquor Law"),  the first statutory implementation of the developing temperance movement in the United States is passed.  The act was unpopular with many working-class people and immigrants.

June 2, 1855 - Opposition to the law turned violent in Portland, ME, during an incident known as the Portland Rum Riot.  Opponents of the Maine Law stormed Portland City Hall because they were informed that Mayor Dow was keeping liquor in the basement. Newspapers reported that Dow ordered rioters to be fired upon, killing one and wounding seven. The riot was a contributing factor to the law being repealed in 1856.

Just 10 miles down the road.  The 52nd anniversary.  There was no 50th remembrance due to the Covid lockdowns in 2020. Not sure what is planned for today.  I'll be down there later today to visit someone there.  Be interesting to see what if anything is being done this year.  The event gets smaller and smaller as time passes as the people who know and care get older and pass on.
{#Meditate}

Well it was just another day tooling around town and the campus.  Nothing of note.  Hard to believe its been 50 years now since I attended KSU.  I know that there were others who used to be here who were there that day, but they have moved on, too.
