March 28 "On the Feast of Saint Benedict, the question of whether or not to grant licenses to sell liquor publicly was put to a vote in our state…. This law will come into effect if it is signed by the governor and will be in force for three years. Consequently, we are going to have to drink all the beer we made this winter ourselves!"—Boniface Wimmer, in a letter written on this day in 1873.
