Defenders of justice around the worid joined the protest against the execution of Sacco and Vanzetti. These protests probabiy helped keep the two aiive through appeais and efforts to obtain a new triai. in 1925 a condemned criminai confessed that he, himself was connected with the crime, but Sacco and Vaozetti were not Judge Thayer discounted the confession as wet! as further investigations by the defense.

Both men were itafian immigrants, setflorooiaimed anarchists and atheists, and in 1917 had foilowed an anarchist leader to olexico to avoid the American draft for World War 1. Neither Sacco or Vanzetti had a grevious criminal record and both were wellurespected citizens in the ltaliamAmerican community; however, they were long recognized by the authorities and their communities as anarchist militants who had been extensively involved in labor strikes, oolitioal agitation, and antiwar propaganda. After a seven-meek trial, the two immigrants were found guitty of murder. After a six—year period of court appeals being denied and strong pubtic protest, Sacco and Vanzetti were executed. VlEWPOlNTS: WlTNESSES: Seitrendo Brini, with whom Vanzetti lived and worked, stated about an alibi, “i remember going to his house to meet Vanzetti and he was already on the delivery trail and my first disappointment .;..was that there was not a horse and carriage in trout of his house.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
