Ken Burns series is back on PBS tonight so this topic is fresh on my mind.

We have all heard the stories in the IFB about how one drink of demon alcohol will lead one down the path to distruction.  Many of us have heard the story of the broken home and one of the most poignant is the story of the little girl who goes to the saloon to plead with her father to come home and he ends up killing her.  Chick made a tract with basically the same story.
