The U.S. History essay topic was Al Capone. Describe Al Capone and the “business” he was involved in. Capone was of course the original gangster. He bootlegged Canadian alcohol into the U.S. during prohibition, and ran some 20,000 speakeasies in and around Chicago. So, one student begins his essay with the words:
“Al Pacino was a true gangster.”
The devil is in the details. Al Pacino was Scarface, although very similar to Al Capone in many respects.
