The mystique of the era can be yours when you don a gangster’s outfit for Halloween. Power and money accompanied the gangsters wherever they went; choosing a gangster Halloween costume associates you with that power and garners the respect you deserve.
Although gangsters existed before the decade, it was Prohibition, instituted in 1920 by the Eighteenth Amendment, that really kicked organized crime into gear. The amendment prohibited the production, transportation, and sale of alcohol. Organized gangs entered the illegal alcohol trade and made huge profits. To protect their trade, they paid off law enforcement and employed cold-blooded violence to protect their interests.
