McMinnville Poison gas hysteria
Salem Witch Trials
There was a series of trials in a little town at Salem. Massachusetts. These court cases caused many people to be hanged without good reasons other than girls accusing them of witchery. There was no proof for witchcraft other than people saying that they were being controlled by someone. If they didn't lie and say they were a witch they would be hanged. These trials caused lots of hysteria back then and people died for no reason at all because of it.
