When we think of witches, we think Halloween costumes made up of green face-paint, pointy hats, black robes, and a broomstick (or even your mother-in-law). The lore behind witches, witchcraft, and its history is long, and stems back thousands of years and expands all over the globe. However, there wasn’t a greater story than the Salem Witch. Torture, religious strain, and fear drove thousands overseas in the hopes to create a pious utopian community. Obviously that ship did not sail, it capsized and crashed on the rocks. This is the history of men, women, and even children and how the Salem Witch Trials came to be, and how it ended.
