The Salem Witch Trialsby Michael V. Uschan
In 1692, Salem Village in the Massachusetts Bay Colony was rocked by a series of accusations made by young girls in the community. The girls accused other people in the village of witchcraft, setting in motion a series of events that led to the imprisonment, trial, and execution of many innocent people. This book looks at the background to the Salem Witch Trials, shedding light on the event with an examination of society in Puritan New England. It details the course of the trials and their impact over time, from the 1690s to the 1900s.
