This program has been postponed due to weather. Check back for a new date.
The second event in our True Crime Series is “Viva l’anarchia”: The Sacco-Vanzetti Case. Christopher Daley will talk about the saga the two Italian anarchists, Nicola Sacco, and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, who were convicted in a Massachusetts courtroom in 1921 for the robbery and murder of a paymaster and his guard in South Braintree. The story begins with the robberies in Bridgewater and Braintree Massachusetts and then turns to the famous trial at Dedham and the following six years of attempts to get a new trial. Next, the worldwide protests and demonstrations will be discussed and then, finally, the last days of Sacco and Vanzetti will be highlighted with a vivid description of their sentencing and execution.
Christopher Daley has been speaking all over New England for the past 30 years and virtually via Zoom throughout the United States for the past two years on historical topics of interest; at libraries, historical societies, schools and all sorts of clubs and organizations!
