Cover: "The Tree of Temperance," Currier & Ives lithograph, c. 1872. Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division, Washington, D.C. The tree features such "fruits" as "hope," "wisdom," and "faith." Included below the lithograph are verses from the Bible. In this issue of the Southwestern Historical Quarterly, Joseph Locke explores how the growing power of the temperance movement in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries contributed to a greater acceptance of overt Christianity in Texas politics with his article "Conquering Salem: The Triumph of the Christian Vision in Turn-of-the-Twentieth-Century Texas."
