St. Valentine’s Day Massacre

Did Capone do it?

The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre of 1929 – a mystery still unsolved – is the story of seven men, gunned down in a Chicago warehouse. The Mob Museum tells this story, brick by brick, bullet by bullet, on its website dedicated entirely to the Massacre: While Al Capone is widely suspected of having ordered this massacre on Bugs Moran’s gang, he was never charged with the crime.

The wall against which the seven men were murdered can be seen at The Mob Museum, with the bricks in their original locations and bullet holes clearly distinguishable. If you can’t make it to the Museum, visit to see the evidence, read about the victims, learn about the outcry from the public, and read about the key players involved in the mystery.
