This storyboard does not have a description.
On April 15, 1920,there was an armed robbery at the Slater and Morrill Shoe Company in South Braintree, Massachusetts.
A guard and paymaster were murdered.
Two Italian-born American anarchists by the names of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were convicted and found guilty of murder of the first degree
Seven years later, they were executed by electric chair at Charlestown State Prison.
However, this was quite a controversial case, as there was a lot of contradictory evidence, for and against their case. Many people believed Sacco and Vanzetti to be innocent.
Even today, there is still controversy over whether or not they were guilty, or just easy targets in the chaos and fear of communism and immigrants of the age.
