Abstract:

The trial of Sacco and Vanzetti in 1921 for the murder of a paymaster and his guard in South Braintree, Massachusetts, has been a cause celebre for nearly a century. Because they were professional anarchists, it has been passionately argued that they never were legally proved guilty; that they were convicted and executed for their political opinions. Author Montgomery, an attorney, knew many of the principals of the trial and of the final review in 1927. In his view, Sacco and Vanzetti were guilty of murder as charged and were properly convicted by an uninfluenced jury. Here he gives the full story of the intimidations, bribes, false confessions, threats, and propaganda on the part of supporters and defenders of Sacco and Vanzetti.
