Sacco and Vanzetti

Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were two Italian-born immigrants, workers, and anarchists, convicted in 1921 for murder. After seven years of legal appeals and international protest, the two men were executed on August 23, 1927 in Boston for a crime that many felt they did not commit.
