As far as i know it didnt have any effect in any way. I read somewhere that the massacre was a blow to the gang (?) that had been attacked and by the fear it inspired, tipped the power scale in favor of Capone. By today's standards less than ten men hardly qualifies as a massacre. One can imagine though, in a dense neighborhood, on a sub zero Febraury morning several men dressed as cops and others in plain clothes get out of a police car, then, a few minutes later, some guys you see every day who work out of the garage next door are laying in a pool of blood. One can be sure that it something to that Northside neighborhood about who's boss.

The Saint Valentine's Day Massacre was the February 14, 1929 murder of unarmed bootlegging gang members in Chicago, Illinois. "Disguising themselves as policemen, members of the Al Capone gang entered a garage at 2122 North Clark Street run by members of the George "Bugs" Moran gang, lined their opponents up against a wall, and shot them in cold blood. The victims included gang members Adam Heyer, Frank Gusenberg, Pete Gusenberg, John May, Al Weinshank, and James Clark, as well as a visitor, Dr. Reinhardt H. Schwimmer." Source: Britannica.com It was in Chicago by four of Al Capone's men. Two went in as police officers and the men from a rival gang put their weapons down and their hands up only to have 150 bullets shot into them. Seven men total died, six from the rival gang and one very unlucky friend that happened to be a the wrong place at the wrong time. In North Chicago at S.M.C Cartage Co. 's factory on february 14.

The St. Valentine's Day Massacre was an infamous gangland killing that occurred in Chicago. The killing resulted from the rivalry between two notorious criminal gangs of Chicago : the South Side Italian gang led by Al 'Scarface' Capone and the North Side Irish gang led by George 'Bugs' Moran. On February 14, 1929, men reportedly sent by Capone machine-gunned 7 men associated with the Moran gang, inside a warehouse garage on North Clark Street. All but one died on the scene and the other shortly thereafter. At least two of the killers were reportedly disguised as Chicago police, which may have led the victims to acquiesce rather than engage in a shootout. (see the related link) The St. Valentine's Massacre occurred on February 14, 1929. There were seven men murdered that day. The St. Valentine's Day Massacre was the murder of 7 men who were related to the North Side Irish gang (led by Bugs Moran) in Chicago in 1929. Not all of those killed were actual gang members, but they were all involved with the gang. The murders happened as a consequence of the rivalry between the South Side Italian gang and the North Side Irish gang. Each gang was involved in the illegal trade of alcohol (this was in the Prohibition Era), and that's why they were fighting (they were in competition against each other). The murderers were involved in the South Side Italian gang (led by Al Capone). The St. Valentine's Day Massacre remains the most notorious gangster killing of the probitionera.

Was the St Valentine's Day Massacre successful?

User Avatar
No, in that George "Bug" Moran was not eliminated and he was the planned target. Moran elected to end his competition with the South Side Gang under Al Capone and they effectively became the Chicago Gang, The Mob or the Outfit. Moran eventually died a pauper at Fort Leavenworth Federal Pennitentiary in Leavenworth, Kansas at the age of 65 where he was serving time for bank robbery.

People think that because chief gangster Al Capone sought to consolidate control by eliminating his rivals in the illegal trades of bootlegging, gambling and prostitution. From 1924 to 1930, the city of Chicago gained a widespread reputation for lawlessness and violence. One February evening in North Chicago, seven well-dressed men were found riddled with bullets inside the S.M.C Cartage Co. garage. They had been lined up against a wall, with their backs to their executioners and shot to death. These people were working for "Bugs" Moran. During the height of prohibition and the never-ending competition between gangster rivals Al "Scarface" Capone and George "Bugs" Moran, bloody warfare was nothing new to the authorities of Chicago. Nobody could think someone from some other state could be involved. Al was never charged or proven mainly because he was not there. There is another theory nobody was afraid to talk about at that time. The theory holds that Enoch Lewis "Nucky" Johnson from New Jersey was involved in the planning of the massacre.
