Fact of the Day: Lemonade Lucy

Lucy Webb Hayes (wife of President Rutherford B. Hayes) was known for her anti-alcoholic views. She supported her husband's ban of alcholic drinks at the White House and other state functions. Their record wasn't totally perfect since they did serve wine at least once. But in the long-run, she was later nicknamed Lemonade Lucy.
