William Hazelgrove presents the exciting and sprawling history behind the 1933 World's Fair, the last of the golden age. He reveals the story of the six millionaire businessmen, dubbed The Secret Six, who beat Al Capone at his own game, ending the gangster era as prohibition was repealed. Drawing from his book, Al Capone and the 1933 World’s Fair: The End of the Gangster Era in Chicago, author Hazelgrove will transport listeners to the day when Capone sealed his own fate, February 14, 1929: know as the day of The St. Valentine's Day Massacre.
