The Temperance Movement began in the early 1800s and by 1833 there were 6,000 local societies in the United States. The town of Rowe, Massachusetts, held a meeting of the Temperance Society on July 4, 1835. This article reports that there are few, if any, intemperate people in town owing to the fact that there had been no tavern there for the past 30 years. Greenfield also held a meeting on July 4. Many temperance speakers, like the Rev. T. Strong, were ministers. The Greenfield Gazette and Franklin Herald was the newspaper in Greenfield, Massachusetts, from June 26, 1827 to June 27, 1837. It changed its name to the Gazette & Mercury.
