5. Today in History: Despite massive protests, anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were executed on this day in 1927. The Italian-born immigrants were convicted of killing the paymaster of a Massachusetts shoe factory and his guard. Anti-radical passions in the U.S. were running high at the time and much of the evidence against them was later discredited. In 1977, Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis issued a proclamation vindicating them.
