The Great Curse
On this date in Dover history, April 21, 1893, there was a movement to suppress that scourge of the city known as the saloon. Citizens were invited to a meeting to discuss "the best methods of suppressing that evil which is generally regarded as the greatest curse of our city." I guess things have changed a bit in over a100 years!
