This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on The Roaring 20s - The Sacco & Vanzetti Trial. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were Italian-born US anarchists who were convicted of murdering a guard and a paymaster during the armed robbery of the Slater and Morrill Shoe Company, on April 15, 1920, in South Braintree, MA. They were executed by electrocution seven years later at Charlestown State Prison.
The Sacco and Vanzetti case is still hotly debated today as a classic example of the tyranny of the establishment over the poor and politically non-conforming. It is generally agreed that a second trial should have been granted and that the refusal to do so was clearly unfair.
For many years there was much support for the belief that both men were wrongly convicted, but more recent scholarship has pointed to the probable guilt of Sacco and the likely innocence of Vanzetti.
