A twist of FATE in the big easy
Sylvestro "Sam Silver Dollar" Carolla
Leader of the Black Hand
The current leader of the Black Hand, Sam Carolla took control of the relatively minor Maltranga crime family in 1922. He slowly gathered all the bootlegging operations in the city under his control, taking complete charge by the end of the decade. He faced down Al Capone when he came to visit the city (backed by the NOPD). And Afterward he somehow still managed to make a favorable deal with the Chicago Outfit to sell his bootleg booze.
