On the morning of February 14th 1929 — while Al Capone was vacationing in Florida — five members of George ‘Bugs’ Moran’s gang, a gang “follower”, and a mechanic who happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time were lined up against the rear inside wall of the garage of the SMC Cartage Company in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago’s North Side. Then, four members of Capone’s gang — two of which were even dressed as police officers — shot and killed the six men lined up against the wall. One of the victims, Frank Gusenberg, was questioned about who had shot him before succumbing to his mortal wounds, His reply, “I’m not gonna talk — nobody shot me.”
That event in history became to be known as The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre.
Hugs and kisses to everyone.
