Crucible, McCarthyism, Salem Witch Trials
Transcript of Crucible, McCarthyism, Salem Witch Trials
<http://www.123HelpMe.com/view.asp?id=101996>. *There were 200 people accused of being witches and 19 were actually killed in Salem, Massachusetts. *Bridget Bishop was the first accused witch to be hanged, and she was accused of witchcraft earlier in her life by her third husband. It is believed that Bridget was, in all probability, a practicing witch. *When accused of being a witch by the Reverend Noyes, Sarah Good replied, 'I am no more a witch than you are a wizard, and if you take away my life God will give you blood to drink.' When the Reverend lay dying years later, he choked on his own blood. *During Rebecca Nurse's first trial, thirty-nine of her neighbors signed petitions stating they did not believe she was a witch. This included Jonathan and Edward Putman. They were the two who had originally sworn the complaint against her. STUPID!! Guess What?!? Ergot fungus grows on rye wheat. It is unaffected by freezing temperatures and is passed into the body through bread made from the wheat or milk from cows that eat the wheat. Scientists claim that this caused the unhealthy condition of the cows, while witches got the blame. Fear can cause chaos!! + America has experienced its fair share of hysteria and fear. + Many people have lost their lives because of accusations and fear gone overboard. "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."
2 Timothy 1:7
