POTD: Shootout

POTD: ShootoutShootout Mantowish Waters, Wisconsin 2014

On our recent Wisconsin trip, our friends took us to the Little Bohemia Lodge, the scene of a shootout between the FBI and John Dillinger and his gang (which included Baby Face Nelson) in 1934. Some of the bullet holes from that fight are still there and today are a minor tourist attraction. Dillenger and company survived the fight; not so an unlucky bystander shot down the road by some overzealous FBI agents. Dillinger did of course succumb to FBI bullets sometime later outside a theater in Chicago, given up by the famed lady in the red dress (who may or may not have actually been wearing the red dress as she promised the FBI she would).
