In winter of 1692, in the small Puritan community of Salem Village, Massachusetts, a group of young girls began acting strangely; Screaming and barking like dogs, throwing things about the room, uttering strange sounds, crawling under furniture and contorting themselves into peculiar positions; Behavior hardly becoming of young, virtuous maidens.
A town doctor was called onto the scene and after a thorough examination, he concluded quite simply – the Devil had come to Salem and the girls were bewitched. The task was clear: Whomever was responsible for this outrage must be brought to justice.
The girls named three townswomen as witches and a wave of hysteria spread throughout Salem. A special court convened to hear the cases and that June, the first convicted witch was executed, hanged in Salem’s Gallows Hill. Eighteen others followed, while some 200 more men, women and children were accused over the next several months.
By September 1692, the hysteria had begun to diminish and public opinion turned against the trials. Though the Massachusetts General Court later annulled guilty verdicts against accused witches and granted indemnities to their families, bitterness lingered in the community, and the painful legacy of the Salem witch trials would endure for centuries.
If you thought I wrote all the above, even for a minute, you flatter me big time! I don’t even know what “contorting” means! This is some information you get about the Salem witch trials, once you go to Salem event. Apart from this information, you can also get a bunch of new, cool stuff, some of which I’m showcasing today. Come on, you’ve made it this far, you can read the credits as well.
Have a great one and I’ll see you all next time.
