Sacco and Vanzetti

We did the reading on Tuesday about Lugi Galleani and how he influenced so many people. Two of those people were Sacco and Vanzetti. Woody Guthrie does a folk song about these two guys and its a very interesting song.
Joan Baez does a ballad about Sacco and Vanzetti and the lyrics come from the letter that Vanzetti wrote.
These two men became very famous and many people wrote song about them for a long time. The song by Woody Guthrie is on his album that is all about these two guys and Pete Seeger is featured in one of the tracks, it is titled "Ballads of Sacco and Vanzetti".
