Jellyroll Hogan Quote

Having survived an ambush by Egan’s Rats gunmen, the Hogan Gang leader, Edward “Jellyroll” Hogan was brought to the police station along with his driver Humbert Costello to identify the shooters.

Hogan replied, I’ll identify them alright, I’ll identify them with a shotgun.

Like other gang leaders from Prohibition Era St. Louis, “Jellyroll” Hogan would enter politics, serving four terms in the Missouri State Senate.
