When I sell liquor, it’s called bootlegging. When my patrons serve it on silver trays on Lake Shore Drive, it’s called hospitality. Al Capone made himself known during the Progressive Era and it’s hard for him not to come to mind when “prohibition” is mentioned. Al Capone was best known for his many crimes, including bootlegging, murder, and tax evasion. Because of his bootlegging, Capone lived an extravagant life which allowed him many opportunities. The murders he committed showcased the power he had, and being convicted of tax evasion seemed like a joke. Although Al Capone was a ruthless gangster there was a side to him that many still don’t know about; a kinder side.

The murder Capone committed showed his mentors what he was capable of and his potential to be a leader. After Frankie Yale turned Capone over to his boss, Johnny Torrio, Capone got into scuffle and personally killed another man for attacking his friend. This put him in danger as he was a suspect in the murder. To make sure Capone didn’t get into any trouble with the police, Torrio sent him to Chicago, which is where Capone would make his mark and his fortune.
Chicago made Capone. If not for the city, Capone wouldn’t be nearly as powerful as he eventually became. His rise to power was eminent as...
