This Day In History :

St. Valentine’s Day Massacre

Valentine’s Day is celebrated every February 14th with many couples choosing to exchange gifts as an expression of love. The holiday has a long and complicated history, but some may actually associate the name St. Valentine more with the “massacre” than any romantic gestures.

The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre of 1929 is famous for the assassination of seven gangsters in Chicago. The seven men were shot to death as Al Capone sent a bloody message to rival George “Bugs” Moran and his men.
