2 killed, 2 suspects executed April 15, 1920, Sacco-Vanzetti Murder Anarchist Case  A paymaster for a shoe company in South Braintree, Massachusetts, was shot and killed along with his guard. The murderers, who were described as two Italian men, escaped with more than $15,000. After going to a garage to claim a car that police said was connected with the crime, Sacco and Vanzetti were arrested and charged with the crime. Although both men carried guns and made false statements upon their arrest, neither had a previous criminal record. On July 14, 1921, they were convicted and sentenced to die. Anti-radical sentiment was running high in America at the time, and the trial of Sacco and Vanzetti was regarded by many as unlawfully sensational.

Was Stalin connected to the anarchist terrorists or just a fan?

    Intellectual Fraudtrial and subsequent appeals gained real traction when

    the Communist International came to Sacco and Vanzetti, glass slipper in hand. Stalin was looking for a way to discredit the American experience, and this trial, when amplified by a friendly media, offered a great opportunity for Soviet agitprop.

    Almost immediately, “spontaneous” protests sprung up throughout the world. Europe’s great squares filled with sobbing, shouting protestors, declaiming the innocence of the immigrant martyrs and denouncing the vile injustice of their persecutors. This trial and subsequent sideshow would serve as the prototype for anti-American hysterics in the years to come.

    Just like today, the casting call for the Sacco and Vanzetti protests attracted a who’s who of “useful idiots.” Leading literary lights like Upton Sinclair, Katherine Ann Porter, John Dos Passos, and Edna St. Vincent Millay not only protested the seeming injustice but also created literary works around it.

    Scores more picketed, protested, or signed petitions. The Crime Library lists a total of twenty-five books written about the case, a dozen of which are still in print. The tone of most are best reflected in titles like Justice Crucified by Roberta Strauss Feuerlicht in 1977 and The Passion of Sacco and Vanzetti by Howard Fast. This latter book was published in 1953, the same year, coincidentally, that Fast, an American Communist, was awarded the oxymoronic Stalin Peace Prize.

    Upton Sinclair, the prestigious socialist author of The Jungle, expressed his outrage in a two volume, 750-page novel called Boston. What the newly discovered letter reveals, however, is that Sinclair knew that the pair were guilty even before he published his novel.

    A letter from literary great Upton Sinclair found by a southern California collector sheds some startling new light on the granddaddy of all left wing murder trials, that of the Italian anarchists, Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti.
    Much depends on the guilt or innocence of these archetypal “innocents”-- --the first in a long line of allegedly framed leftists from Alger Hiss to the Rosenbergs to Leonard Peltier to Mumia Abu Jamal--including the very credibility of the American cultural establishment.

    In the way of background, local police apprehended Sacco and Vanzetti in May 1920, following the murder of a paymaster in South Braintree, Massachusetts. When arrested, Sacco had in his pocket six obsolete bullets, which matched the bullet found in the body of Alessandro Berardelli, a security guard killed in the robbery. Stuffed in Sacco’s waistband was the gun through which the fatal bullet had been fired. As to Vanzetti, he carried Berardelli’s revolver.

    In September 1920, Sacco and Vanzetti were both indicted for the murder.....

    Mar 4, 2006 - Anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were a cause ... He thought that a larger truth was that there was repression in America and that that was his subject and that innocent people sometimes were found guilty. I think that he showed a similar kind of ethical lapse later on when he was very hesitant in the late 1930s and early 1940s to condemn Stalin.

The Life and Death of Sacco and Vanzetti. New York: ...In the fall of 1920, with revolution in the wind in Italy and dreaming of becoming the next John Reed, Lyons made his way to Naples bearing credentials of the Federated Press news service and the monthly magazine The Liberator.[7] En route he met another aspiring correspondent bearing identical credentials, Norman H. Matson, and the pair decided to spend the next six months sharing expenses in pursuit of their common goal. Versed in the ongoing case against the Italian-American anarchists Sacco and Vanzetti, Lyons made the pilgrimage to Sacco's native village of Torremaggiore, where Sacco's older brother Sabino was mayor.[8] Lyons' Italian experiences were later put to use in his first book, The Life and Death of Sacco and Vanzetti, published in 1927 by the Communist Party-affiliated International Publishers, in which he argued the case for the pair's innocence.
  • Sacco and Vanzetti - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia 1928, Upton Sinclair published his novel Boston, an indictment of the American judicial system. He explored Vanzetti's life and writings, as its focus, and mixed fictional characters with historical participants in the trials. Though his portrait of Vanzetti was entirely sympathetic, Sinclair disappointed advocates for the defense by failing to absolve Sacco and Vanzetti of the crimes, however much he argued that their trial had been unjust.[154] Years later, he explained: "Some of the things I told displeased the fanatical believers; but having portrayed the aristocrats as they were, I had to do the same thing for the anarchists."[155][156] While doing research for the book, Sinclair found evidence that Sacco and Vanzetti were guilty; he referred to this as an "ethical problem" but did not include the information in his book.[157][158]
