Nicola Sacco By: Landon Mayhew

Ferdinando Sacco was born April 22, 1891. He was born in Italy before he migrated to the United States when he was 17 years old. He was an anarchist and believed much of anarchy. His original name was Ferdinando, but he eventually adopted Nicola from his older brother, after he had died.

Nicola married Maria Isabella Valenzi and started a family. He then met Bartolommeo Vanzetti. Nicola was opposed to the war. He even attended protest meetings and eventually fled to Mexico, and avoided getting drafted into the war.
April 15, 1920, Nicola was convicted of murder. In the midst of a robbery he was accused of shooting 2 people. The victims were Frederick Parmenter and Alessandro Berardelli. Nicola and his partner were caught and arrested.
Nicola and Vanzetti were both eventually executed. Their life was taken by the chair August 23, 1927.

Of coarse he didn't leave a great impact on people then because he left two people dead. He did help to make better crime investigators, he helped them to become more advanced.
