Salem Witch TrialsBy Samuel Cherry

To prove if the accused "witch" is a real witch the towns people would make a special cake made with the witches urine and was then fed to a dog. If the witch screams in pain, they will be hung.

Belief in the supernatural–and specifically in the devil’s practice of giving certain humans the power to harm others in return for their allegiance had begun in Europe in the 14th century, and was spread through colonial New England.

9-year-old Elizabeth Parris and 11-year-old Abigail Williams (the daughter and niece of Samuel Parris, minister of Salem Village) began having fits, including violent contortions and uncontrollable outbursts of screaming. When taken to the doctor,William Griggs diagnosed bewitchment

The accused witches were brought to the magistrates (Jonathan Corwin and John Hathorne) and were questioned.The girls who accused the people of bewitching them(9-year-old Elizabeth Parris and 11-year-old Abigail Williams (the daughter and niece of Samuel Parris, minister of Salem Village) came to the courtroom and were put on trial.

Salem witch trials began during the spring of 1692 when a group of young girls claimed to be possessed by the devil and accused several women of being witches(the first of the accused was Bridget Bishop).
