Shrewsbury – The Shrewsbury Historical Society presents “Sacco and Vanzetti Revisited,” by speaker Christopher Daley, Wednesday, Jan. 22, at 7 p.m., at the Society, 17 Church Rd.

This one-hour slide lecture chronicles the saga of Niccola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti. The story begins with robberies in Bridgewater and Braintree and continues with the famous trial at Dedham, attempts for a retrial, demonstrations, and their execution.
