Historical Figure FaceBook Project Joseph Bonanno

Richy Santiago - Computer Science Crossroads@Meade Philadelphia, PA

My historical figure was a mobster named Joseph Bonanno. He was born in January 18, 1905 in Castellammare del Golfo, Italy. He migrated to New York in 1924 and started a bootlegging business. Joseph Bonanno lead one of the top crime family's in New York from the 1930's to the 1960's.

Why I picked Joseph Bonanno was because I am interested in mobsters and organized crime I think it has a lot of action. What I learned was being a godfather involves hard work, smarts, and connections. Mobsters were well respected by their family and no one will try to mess with them.
