All the Law in the World Won’t Stop Them: Crime, Gambling

April 19 @ 7:00 pm

Join us for a presentation by Greg Veitch on his new book All the Law in the World Won’t Stop Them, a history of crime, gambling and corruption in the early years of Saratoga Springs on Thursday April 19 at 7 pm. Stories include famous gamblers and gangsters such as John Morrissey, Richard Canfield, and Arnold Rothstein; long forgotten areas of the town that were overrun with crime, violence and despair like Willow Walk and Searing Alley; and little known stories like the murder of a constable, the theft of gambling evidence from the police station, and even a connection between the gangsters at Saratoga and the fixing of the 1919 World Series.
