Capone's Early Years

It all started in 1899 in Brooklyn New York Where Alphonse Capone Was born to immigrants from Italy Teresina and Gabrielle Capone. Along with Al came Frank , Ralph, James, Mafalda , Matthew, Rose, John, Umberto Capone a pretty big family for sure.

Al and his family didn't exactly live in the fanciest part of the city and so when Al saw a gang of kids take an old ladies washing board he gathered a bunch of kids and went and took back that washing board they celebrated in victory . In my opinion its where it all started .

Capone's Crimes

in 1920 during the height of Prohibition, Capone's multi-million dollar Chicago operation in bootlegging , prostitution and gambling dominated the organized crime scene.

One of his most well known crimes if the Saint Valentine massacre where 6 mob associates were murdered but later there was no evidence that Al was involved.
