Subject: RE: Should drink pitchers be required for folk venues
I don't see where you get the idea that folks living in what became the US from the 16th to 19th centuries drank any less than anybody else. The first 3/4ths of the 19th Century in the US was time of day-long imbibing for most of the citizens. It was only after the Temperance Movement got rolling that it slowed down -- and then not by very much.
