Put on your zoot suit and follow in
the footsteps of America's most
infamous gangsters as they turned
Wisconsin into the land of crimes
when guest speaker Chad Lewis comes
to Lakeview Community Library, 112
Butler St., Random Lake, for the
program, "Wisconsin's Gangster
Past." The free program begins at 7
p.m., Monday, April 12.
Filled with deadly bank robberies,
explosive shootouts, brutal murders
and daring kidnappings, the
presentation lets the audience
discover the grisly locations where
gangster history will never die.
Lewis will talk about the
location where John Dillinger had a
bloody shoot out with the
authorities, where Baby Face Nelson
hid out and looked to mowed down
innocent bystanders, the gangsters'
favorite hangouts where they danced
the night away, where Al Capone
disposed of his enemies and flew in
his bootleg liquor and about the
Barker-Karpis gang, which ransacked
towns, bribed police, and killed
anyone in their way.
