How long did it take Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti to move from arrest to execution?

It took seven years for Sacco and Vanzetti to move from arrest to execution, from their arrest in May 1920 to their electrocution on August 23, 1927.

The Italian-born anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were convicted of robbery and murder in South Braintree, Massachusetts.

The evidence was shaky and the conviction seemed motivated by ethnic and political bias.

In 1977, Massachusetts governor Michael Dukakis pardoned Sacco and Vanzetti posthumously.
