Open Access Graduate Research Paper
At the time of the discovery and colonization of America, alcohol was firmly entrenched in the society of the Old World. The drunkard was common, particularly in the urban areas. He was treated poorly and often imprisoned for his alcoholic abuses. For the most part, however, he was ignored. (Ewing and Rouse, 1978) Beer and wine was simply transported across the Atlantic to the colonies as a way of life with no special significance. Drunkenness was not tolerated, but even the Puritans drank. (Royce, 1981) The drunkard was a social misfit and a source of pity. (Ewing and Rouse)
