At the same time poverty stricken families from the coal mining region , therefore, in cities like New York, Chicago and Detroit Greaser gangs began to recruit more Appalachians as well as Polish, Russian and American Indian youth. In the late seventies through the nineties, it wasn't uncommon to find entire gangs or sections made up of American Indian and Appalachian greasers buried in pockets of the large cities.

Chicago's first gangs developed along ethnic lines out of the volunteer fire departments during the antebellum period. With names like “Fire Kings,” these outfits of young, often single working-class men competed against one another in departmental reviews, brawled in the streets, and conducted social events. “Running with the machine” was celebrated in the dime novels of the day as part of the culture of manly bravado. When the professionalization of firefighting departments forced volunteer companies to disband, the locus of gang life shifted into saloons, where “political fixers” harnessed the energies of these men.
