Editorial Reviews

This program unearths surprising information about a notorious period in early American history. No one was burned at the stake after the 1693 Salem Witch Trials, but 19 people were hanged and one was "pressed" to death, all on accusations from young girls. At the peak of the hysteria, some 150 people, male and female, were accused of being witches. A year after the trials, the hysteria subsided; in 1711, some financial restitution was paid to the families of the dead. This program describes what happened and why, presenting original accounts of the sorrow the jurors and others felt after the trials were over.
