Mozart and Monet die, the 21st Amendment repealing prohibition is ratified, the Montgomery Bus Boycott begins, and O.J. Simpson heads to prison, all on this day.
1933: Utah becomes the 36th U.S. state to ratify the 21st Amendment to the United States Constitution, bringing an end to prohibition. The amendment repeals the 18th Amendment, which had made the manufacture, sale or transportation of alcohol illegal in the United States in 1920. While it wouldn't become officially effective until Dec. 15, people started drinking openly before that date.
