With its many inlets, points, and coves, the coast of New Jersey stood out as a haven for rumrunners brazenly thumbing their nose at the federal government during Prohibition. New Jersey was also recognized as the birthplace of the federal government's shore-based units of the United States Coast Guard, the organization charged at that time with stopping the flow of demon run into America. With its vivid images, New Jersey Coast Guard Stations and Rumrunners revives the days when New Jersey's coasties stood toe-to-toe with the rumrunners of the 1920s and 1930s.
