The Salem Witch Trials
Transcript of The Salem Witch Trials
(50 minutes) ""The cases of Sarah Good, Sarah Wilds, Elizabeth How, Susannah Martin, and Rebecca Nurse were heard next by the court on June 29, 1692. Unlike Bridget Bishop’s trial, spectral evidence was a key in the conviction of four of the five accused. The one accused who escaped a guilty verdict was Rebecca Nurse. However, when the jurors announced a not guilty verdict in her case, the afflicted girls howled, thrashed about, and rolled around on the floor. With the courtroom in an uproar, the judges asked the jury to reconsider its decision. When they did, a guilty verdict was returned. Rebecca Nurse, along with the other four convicted women, were hanged July 19, 1692, on Gallows Hill. "" ---Tim Sutter © 2000-2003
Salem Witchcraft: The Events and Causes of the Salem Witch Trials Spectral Evidence ( the 'fake-but-credible')---- is a form of evidence based upon dreams and visions. Spectral evidence was testimony that the accused witch's spirit appeared to the witness in a dream or vision (for example, a black cat or wolf). The dream or vision was admitted as evidence. Sutter, Tim. "Salem Witchcraft: The Events and Causes of the Salem Witch Trials." Salem Witchcraft. N.p., 2000-2003. Web. 08 Jan. 2013. Spectral Evidence was admitted in court during the Salem witch trials by the appointed chief justice, William Stoughton. Thus, witnesses (who were often the accusers) would testify against the accused and it was taken as evidence that the accused were responsible for the biting, pinching and choking even though they were elsewhere at the time. http://www.newsrealblog.com/2011/04/07/great-moments-in-multiculturalism-the-saudi-black-magic-edition/ http://moderncollecting.wordpress.com/ http://www.allposters.com/-sp/Salem-Witch-Trial-1692-Posters_i8674218_.htm http://news.lib.uchicago.edu/blog/2012/10/29/the-salem-witch-trials-a-legal-bibliography-for-halloween/ http://pinterest.com/bellanichole75/music-and-movies/ http://www.salemweb.com/memorial/chronology.shtml http://www.badwitch.co.uk/2010/06/anniversary-of-salem-witch-trial.html http://people.tribe.net/b2697e2b-fde9-471b-8b82-eb81add5cde5/blog/9cc8628a-2098-4c99-9684-d6d83c537668 http://kenanomon.deviantart.com/art/Witchcraft-Rework-274236012 http://cmapspublic2.ihmc.us/rid=1H2HC1CP8-DLRJWP-2G1C/Salem%20Witch%20Trials.cmap http://stmravens.wordpress.com/2011/12/01/stma-drama-playing-to-a-full-house-in-the-crucible/ Because of the guilt and shame that the town of salem felt for it's horrible deed many of the members of the legislature that condemned the Salem citizens, signed a formal apology a couple years later.
