On February 19, 1830, Michigan’s first temperance organization — the Detroit Society for the Suppression of Intemperance — was organized. Its first President was General Charles Larned, a veteran of both the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812, and who served the Territory as Attorney General.
In 1833, the organization expanded into the Michigan Temperance Society.
