Witches: Accuseds and Judges

Principally in 1690s America.

The Salem witch trials were a series of hearings and prosecutions of people accused of witchcraft in colonial Massachusetts between February 1692 and May 1693. The trials resulted in the executions of twenty people, most of them women. Despite being generally known as the Salem witch trials, the preliminary hearings in 1692 were conducted in several towns in the Province of Massachusetts Bay: Salem Village (now Danvers), Ipswich, Andover, and Salem Town.

(Margaret Hamilton is included to honor her iconic performance in the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz as the Wicked Witch of the West.)
