This episode discusses the rise of Paul Kelly, whose Five Points gang was a cobbled grouping of multiple street gangs in Lower Manhattan. His insight into how gangs should work, sets the frame work for the future Commission or the National Syndicate. At this point, he is merely fighting for control, power and prestige.
Monk Eastman was one of the last of his kind. A rough thug that ruled over a brutal streetgang named after him. The streets of Lower Manhattan would be turned into a war zone at the hands of Monk Eastman in his fight against the Five Points Gang and their leader, Paul Kelley.
I started a Patreon to help me pay for professional editing of future episodes (though I will go back and redo the old episodes too over time)
