Sacco and Vanzetti Case

The Sacco and Vanzetti case was significant because it caused national questioning as to if this was actually about their political beliefs and immmigrant status.During the 1920s anarchists were common and were depised by the government. There was still dscrimination against certain immigrant groups.For example, Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were two anarchists that would go and spread their literature to others. These men were two of many who openly disagreed and went against the government using several methods.Additionally, when they were tried and then executed many people caused riots and protests under the belief that this was really about their political beliefs. The beliefs were supported by the common knowledge that the government did not like these kinds of people.Finally, some say that their immigrant status affected their trial. Immigrants were still not treated as equally. This case was extremely controversal among people about why this occured and who actually did it.The national disscussions on whether they were tried based on their political beliefs is what gave this case significance.
