It was the height of prohibition in the late ‘20s and the underground mob scene was prospering in most major cities in the United States with rum running, loan sharking, protection rackets, and illicit speakeasies and gaming halls. In order to reach supremacy for the underground as a unified crime faction, crime bosses from Atlantic City, New York City and Chicago agreed to come together to establish The Commission at the Atlantic City conference. The Commission would oversee all mob organizations in the United States and be the supreme ruler of the underground. Various opinions were made known on how The Commission should be run, who would be the boss of all bosses, and if it should even be created. This created some preemptive hostility but the crime bosses agreed to conduct themselves with integrity at the conference and a truce was put into effect. Nuggy Jones from Atlantic City agreed to host the conference at his residence and place of business, the Karlton Ritz Hotel on the Boardwalk. Mobsters from the biggest families started arriving in Atlantic City and tension started building in the air. This is where the story begins…
