The story begins on an average day, April 15, 1920. At 3:00pm two Italians where standing near a fence, when they pulled out guns and started shooting. [1]They made away with 15,776.51 dollars from the two mortally wounded, Frederick Parmenter and Alessandro Berardell
and got into a get away car and eluded the police.[1][3]




Suspects

Although there were many suspects, they settled on the two with probably least of evidence against them. One of the other suspects was Celestino F. Madeiros, he was a portuguese immigrant with a criminal record. Madeiros had been convicted of murder. He was in Dedham jail with Sacco, He slipped him a note saying, he was part of the robbery and told police that he was innocent. With this info they motioned for a new trail. Madeiros was executed with Sacco and Vanzetti.[3]



How this affected America

Red Scare, this and the Bolshivek Revolutiuon are the causes for the red scare. Americans where worried about it anyway, but once it came into there own country it was a different story. The Sacco and Vanzetti trail made Americans realize that there where people, who in fact did oppose the government.



Historical Significance


1920's America some say to be paradise, but there are nightmares hidden in its past. This trail effected America's history for the best. It made us more aware of such things in the world. Made us realize that all things are not as they seem.
