Chicago has a long history of organized crime and was famously home to the American mafia figure Al Capone. In 1850, Chicago had a population of 80,000 people, but the city had no police force. Because Chicago was built over a swamp, mud constantly oozed from beneath the city's wooden streets. It was decided the whole city would be 'mudjacked' 10 feet (3 metres) and the city would rest on stilts, with stones at the base. This marked the beginning of the free-wheeling crime sub-culture that overtook Chicago, and culminated with Al Capone's prohibition era reign as the criminal prince of Chicago's organized crime. Join us as we deep dive the infamous history of gangsters in America's heartland on the Gangster Tour of Chicago
