  2. 2. Fear of Radicals<br />At the beginning of the 1920s, fear of radicalism grew into a national crusade. It was believed that Radicals were going to take control of the country which became more apparent through the numerous business strikes occurring around the country.<br />
  3. 3. Sacco<br />His primary job was making shoes.<br />Born April 22, 1981 in Italy.<br /> Anarchist <br />In 1908, he left for the U.S. <br />
  4. 4. Vanzetti<br />Born June 11, 1888 in Italy<br />Main job was fish peddler<br />Went to anarchist meetings with Sacco<br />Left for U.S. in 1908<br />
  5. 5. The Case<br />Anarchists Ferdinando Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were convicted of an armed robbery in Massachusetts where a guard and a paymaster were killed. With almost no solid evidence of the crime, they were arrested.<br />
  6. 6. Evidence<br />The seven eyewitnesses thought that they saw Sacco but couldn’t completely confirm that.<br />The gun seen at the scene was similar to Sacco’s gun.<br />Sacco was not at work that day of the robbery.<br />Vanzetti admitted that he lied about the guns he owned and the location of friends’ residences.<br />
  7. 7. Decision<br />In July of 1921, both men were found guilty were given the death penalty (both had a choice between death penalty and life imprisonment).<br /> This decision brought up huge unrest in America, some saying it was an unjust case because of the anti-radical feelings <br />Many thought it was right for them to be convicted.<br />
