Sacco and Vanzetti trial evidence of anti-immigration.

  • Boston, Massachusetts

A supreme representation of the Red Scare in the United States, on May 24, 1921, the Sacco and Vanzetti trial began deliberation.  The pair were accused and tried of a 1920 armed robbery and murder of two payroll clerks.  They were found guilty, mainly because of the anarchist and labor reform backgrounds, and were executed by electrocution in 1927.  The trial attracted international attention, with many claiming feelings of anti-immigrant hostility leading the judgement in the trial.
