Salem Witch Trials

The Salem Witch Trials began in 1692. Nineteen men and woman were accused of witchcraft, and taken to Gallows Hill to be hung. Another man was taken to be pressed to death with stones when he would not admit to participating in witchcraft. Hundereds of others were accused of witchcraft but were then found innocent, and those who weren't found innocent spent months at a time in jail until they "told the truth".
