What happened at Apalachin?
In episode 106 of Comics Reading Comics which you can listen to here, Erin Gabbard ask the question, “Could there have been something that happened in the sixties that we don’t know about because we are just stupid?” This was in response to our bewilderment about what the comic was referring to with the mysterious word…Apalachin. Well, to answer Erin’s question…yes and no. It was something that happened in the 50’s that we were to stupid to know about. It was one of the biggest gang bust in history and happened in 1957.
If you would like to know more the wiki page is…here.
I’ve also attached a short YouTube video about the meeting.
