Franko De Vaughn's Newly Released "Heritage" Is a Shocking History Exploring the Rise of Alcohol and Its Related Social and Medical Evils in America

"Heritage" from Christian Faith Publishing author Franko de Vaughn is a fascinating historical commentary that documents the introduction of alcoholic beverages, breweries, and distilleries to America with the arrival of the Mayflower in 1620 which quickly grew and gave rise to a host of widespread social and health-related issues despite government interventions--leading to a nation beset with a centuries-old heritage, or rather a curse, that has profoundly shaped it for the worse.

MEADVILLE, Pa., March 21, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- "Heritage": a sweeping account of the history of alcohol in America. "Heritage" is the creation of published author Franko de Vaughn, a retired textile engineering professional with a passion for classic literature and philosophy.

Vaughn writes, "The definition of heritage may imply love for humanity, charity, empathy, and so forth.
In giving or gifting something to someone, it may be something meaningful for a sole person or a collectivity.
A king may give in heritage a castle or an estate of land to his or her subjects, or leave laws of protection for the well-being of the kingdom's citizens. Also, for the love of the community, a theater, stadium, library, or the like may be built that will show extraordinary goodwill for the people. He could give classics, artwork, an estate, or a tandem of oxen to till the ground and seed for food—outstanding! Even gifts for regular folks, wills, or regular gifts for a market may show goodwill even in exchanging gifts.

From 1920 to 1933, Woodrow Wilson, Warren Harding, and Calvin Coolidge got a wonderful legislation approved. It was called the prohibition of the sale of alcoholic beverages and the like. Can you imagine such a monumental heritage for humanity? It lasted only thirteen years as the prohibition law was halted in 1933; this dream of living a pleasant life here on earth was gone."

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Franko de Vaughn's new book is a staggering work of social importance that goes to show how not everything one can call a heritage is necessarily a blessing.

Vaughn draws from fields beyond history to portray the complicated web American society is now trapped in, from sociological observation to moral and cultural analysis, ultimately appealing to those in the Christian spirit to shed the hypocrisy and take a stand against the misguided values of a drunken nation.
