8 SACCO & VANZETTI TRIAL Overview

9 At 3:00 P.M. on April 15,1920, a paymaster and his guard were carrying a factory payroll of $15,776 through the main street of South Braintree, Massachusetts, a small industrial town south of Boston. Two men standing by a fence suddenly pulled out guns and fired on them. The gunmen snatched up the cash boxes dropped by the mortally wounded pair and jumped into a waiting automobile. The bandit gang, numbering four or five in all, sped away, eluding their pursuers. At first this brutal murder and robbery, not uncommon in post-World War I America, aroused only local interest. Background

10 Three weeks later, on the evening of May 5, 1920, two Italians, Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, fell into a police trap that had been set for a suspect in the Braintree crime. Although originally not under suspicion, both men were carrying guns at the time of their arrest and when questioned by the authorities they lied. As a result they were held and eventually indicted for the South Braintree crimes. Vanzetti was also charged with an earlier holdup attempt that had taken place on December 24, 1919, in the nearby town of Bridgewater. These events were to mark the beginning of twentieth-century America's most notorious political trial.

11 After a hard-fought trial of six weeks, during which the themes of patriotism and radicalism were often sharply contrasted by the prosecution and the defense, the jury found Sacco and Vanzetti guilty of robbery and murder on July 14,1921. This verdict marked, however, only the beginning of a lengthy legal struggle to save the two men. It extended until 1927, during which time the defense made many separate motions, appeals, and petitions to both state and federal courts in an attempt to gain a new trial. Background

12 Overview: The governor of Massachusetts has summoned you to testify in a clemency hearing for two convicted death row murderers. Governors convene these hearings when they are considering granting clemency, a pardon or lessening of a penalty. Objective: Should Sacco and Vanzetti receive clemency? What effects did postwar tensions have on America’s founding ideals? Directions: Each student will be assigned to a pair/group to play a role. You are to prepare for the trial according to the instructions provided. Remember you want to be able to both defend your position and attack and undermine those who oppose you so collecting evidence is very important. Clemency Hearing

13 Each group will have someone present a brief (1 minute) opening statement that explains who you are and you will share how you feel regarding the clemency of Sacco and Vanzetti. When everyone has spoken there will be time for a brief debate of ideas and for the jury (Lowell Committee) to ask questions to each of the groups. If time allows, groups may also question each other. The jury may also ask questions of Sacco and Vanzetti. If time allows, groups may also question Sacco and Vanzetti Sacco and Vanzetti will give their closing statements. After the presentation of statements and questions, the jury will deliberate a verdict. The deliberations will be open and take place in front of the class, as a fish bowl. Each member of the jury is required to present an argument during deliberations. Then a vote will be taken and a verdict reached. After the verdict has been reached, Governor Fuller will choose to either support the Lowell Committee’s decision or overrule it and make his own decision. Clemency Hearing
