Witchcraft Trials: Fear, Betrayal, and Death in Salemby Deborah Kent
In 1692 in Salem Village, Massachusetts, a few teenage girls began suffering from a mysterious affliction. When the condition worsened, people in the village believed the devil must be at work. The afflicted girls accused three women of witchcraft and hysteria swept through the village. Before the Salem witchcraft trials ended, nineteen innocent men and women had been executed. Author Deborah Kent examines this tragic period in American history.
