Witch Trails In Salem

From June through September of 1692, nineteen men and women, all having been convicted of witchcraft, were carted to Gallows Hill, a slope near Salem Village, for hanging. Another man who was over eighty years old was pressed to death under heavy rocks and stones for refusing to submit to a trail on witchcraft charges. Hundreds of others faced accusations of witchcraft; dozens languished in jail for months without trials until the hysteria that swept through Puritan Massachusetts subsided.
During this time many people would just join in so that they won't be accused and also many lied about "signing the devils book" just so they wouldn't be hung.
