The Rivalry of the 1920’s Chicago Gangsters vs. Eliot Ness Presented by Jim Gibbons

February 15 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Historical Presenter, Jim Gibbons, will discuss the arrival of FBI agent Eliot Ness to the City of Chicago. Ness will then search through the records of prohibition agents, and hand-pick a reliable team. Due to the swift work of Ness and his men, Al Capone will be indicted and charged with 5,000 Volstead Act violations. No matter how many times The Organization tried, Ness and his men could not be bribed nor intimidated. Charles Schwarz of the Chicago Daily News will soon nickname these federal agents, “The Untouchables.”
