Organized crime has been a part of history since the late 1800?s. It?s a
bit amazing that these enterprises of people get together to commit strings of
crimes. The Cosa Nostra or better known Mafia, started to establish in
America at the dawn of the 20th century. They even had there own union. It
was called the Unione Siciliana. This helped Sicilian immigrants learn
English and the American ways. One of the most famous mobsters to use
this was Salvatore Lucania or better known as ?Lucky? Luciano.
Born Salvatore Lucania, was born in 1897 in Lercardia Fridda, Sicily.
The town was known for extreme sulfur mining that took place and was just
a bit smaller than the largest town in Sicily. Crimes and bad ways was
something that Luciano carried with him his whole life. Growing up trouble
seemed to always found him. Luciano?s parents soon made the hardest
decision of there lives and left all they new to come to the land of
opportunity, America (Cambell,233).
The Luiciano?s left for America in 1906 and would reach it November
that same year. Soon they would realize that Charles would just dig himself
into a deeper hole of trouble. As an early
