Overview

It was billed as the Main Street of America and the Mother Road. It was a highway of commerce, both legal and illicit. It was traveled by vacationing families and serial killers, truck drivers and celebrities, vagabonds and gangsters, the weary and the wicked. It was the hunting grounds of criminals and the battlegrounds of racial violence and gangland strife.
