Nation, Carry (Amelia b. Moore)

(1846–1911) temperance reformer; born in Garrard County, Ky. Her alcoholic first husband left her with an abiding hatred for liquor and saloons. She conducted a series of hatchet-swinging, saloon-smashing missions in Kansas and in large cities throughout the country. She was arrested 30 times before her retirement due to poor health. Even supporters of the temperance movement found her a difficult person.
