Rutgers historian questions whether famous 1929 gangster summit actually took place
Al Capone and Enoch ‘Nucky’ Johnson, both with hats, walk the Atlantic City Boardwalk during Capone’s May 1929 visit to the city. It's long been said Capone visited the resort as part of a convention of mobsters from around the country. Now historian Marc Mappen argues only Capone and some other Chicago mobsters visited the town.
