This is a 50 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Gangsters & Outlaws – John Dillinger. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
John Herbert Dillinger was a famous American gangster in the Depression-era United States, who operated with a group of men known by some as the Dillinger Gang or Terror Gang that were, among other activities, accused of robbing 24 banks and 4 police stations.
Dillinger escaped from jail twice. He was also charged with, but never convicted of, the murder of an East Chicago, IN police officer who shot Dillinger in his bullet-proof vest during a shootout, prompting him to return fire. It was Dillinger's only homicide charge.
It’s not known for sure how Dillinger met Anna Sage, who eventually brought him down. She owned and operated her own brothel. For a time she was under investigation for immigration violation by the Immigration and Naturalization Service, and charged as an “alien of low moral character.”
At some point during her time in East Chicago, she had become involved with one of the city’s police detectives, Martin Zarkovich, either as a friend or romantic interest. After Sage told Zarkovich of her problems with the INS, he arranged a meeting with FBI agent Melvin Purvis.
Purvis and Sage met on July 19, 1934, and he promised to do all he could to stop her deportation proceedings but said he could not guarantee anything. She told Purvis that she, Dillinger, and Hamilton sometimes went to the Marboro Theater to see a movie and they might be going again soon.
As Dillinger and the 2 women walked down the street, Purvis quickly pulled out his gun, and yelled “Stick’em up, Johnnie, we have you surrounded!” Dillinger began to run, reaching into his pants pocket to draw a gun. He entered an alley just as a volley of gunfire greeted him and after being hit numeerous times died..
