Carrie Amelia Moore Nation (November 25, 1846 – June 9, 1911) was an American woman who was a radical member of the temperance movement, which opposed alcohol before the advent of Prohibition. She is particularly noteworthy for promoting her viewpoint through vandalism. Nation frequently attacked the property of alcohol-serving establishments (most often taverns) with a hatchet. Recently, Nation's behavior has inspired fiction writers as well as an opera composer. Nation was a relatively large woman, almost 6 feet (180 cm) tall and weighing 175 pounds (79 kg), with a stern countenance. She described herself as "a bulldog running along at the feet of Jesus, barking at what He doesn't like," and claimed a divine ordination to promote temperance by destroying bars. In the spirit of fun and irony, Carrie Nation Cocktail club opened its doors under the same identity as the hatchet wielding prohibition advocate. Luckily for us, that was shortlived.
