Episode 80: James Alexander Cary

Ep. 80

Andrew tells us the story of James Alexander Cary, who served in the first World War before becoming a ranger with the National Park Service stationed in Hot Springs during Prohibition. Cary spent most of his time tracking down bootleggers and their liquor stashes in the mountains. In 1926, Cary arrested three men illegally transporting booze, one of whom threatened Cary, telling him that he would never be able to testify against the bootleggers.


Afterwards we test Caitlin's Harry Potter trivia and it seems really difficult unlike that easy Star Wars quiz Andrew was given.
