The case of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts vs. Nicola Sacco and Bartholomew Vanzetti is one that continues to baffle lawyers and laymen alike. Sacco and Vanzetti were arrested for armed robbery in 1920, then found guilty and executed in 1927. In those seven years the entire world watched the courts of Massachusetts, and the nation was polarized: guilty or not guilty. Now, ninety years after their execution, we will take a closer look at the social movements of the time that led to their guilty verdict, their lives before their conviction--their ties to Bridgewater--, and look at trial transcripts and letters written by Sacco and Vanzetti themselves and others involved in the case. This lecture will be presented by Jordan Holt, OBHS clerk and Masters of History candidate at Simmons College.
