Salem vs. Nuns
Salem Witch Trials
The Salem witch trials occurred in colonial Massachusetts between 1692 and 1693. With the talk of witchcraft beginning to spread, mass hysteria started to rise in the town causing many false accusations for the next few months. More than 200 people were accused of practicing witchcraft, the Devil's magic, and 20 were executed. Eventually, the colony admitted the trials were a mistake and compensated the families of those convicted. Since then, the story of the trials has become famous with paranoia and injustice.
