The Real Salem Witch Trials
The Salem witch trials was a set of trials that led to the executions of everyday men and women in Salem because they were thought to be sending out their spirit on other people in the village.
Describe The Salem Witch Trials as they occurred in history
The trials started when the local authorities received a simple complaint from a victim of witchcraft. When the trials did start in 1692 the village had just recovered from war, epidemic, and political upheaval. This was a reason why the community had started accusing people of witchcraft.
