Al Capone And The St Valentine's Day Massacre Feb 14th 1929

Al Capone (a.k.a. 'Scarface'), one of the most famous American gangsters, rose to infamy as the leader of the Chicago mafia during the Prohibition era. Before being sent to Alcatraz Prison in 1931 from a tax evasion conviction, he had amassed a personal fortune estimated at $100 million dollars and was responsible for countless murders.
