Al Capone

If you have to ask what jazz is, you'll never know. - Louis Armstrong

“Somebody had to throw some liquor on that thirst. Why not me?” - Al Capone

First you take a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you. - F. Scott Fitzgerald

One of the things is that the good intentions of Prohibition, from reading over the years and from becoming obsessed with the research of gangs in New York City, seems to have allowed crime figures at the time, like Luciano, Capone, Torrio and Rothstein, to organize to become more powerful, which pulled all the way through until the '70s. - Martin Scorsese

Prohibition makes you want to cry into your beer and denies you the beer to cry into. - Don Marquis

Written Thesis - The 1920’s were a time of huge change that made it illegal to drink alcohol creating the bootlegging business, which led to the growth of organized crime and to the creation of the gang leader Al Capone who almost took complete control of Chicago. The other effects of the 20’s included the creation of the music style jazz, which forever stuck with America and grew a large audience that still follows it today.
