Arthur Miller wrote "The Crucible" as a reflection of the communist witchhunts that were occuring during his life, in the United States. He gathered his information in Salem and began to make the stories meet, through creation of "The Cruicible."

Anti-communism can be defined as the opposite of communism. Organizations formed to outlaw communism in the United States.

Joseph R. McCarthy was a senator who spoke out against communism in the United States. The term McCarthyism was originally coined as a criticism of the senator, but later gained a following of anti-communists in the United States. McCarthyism was used to justify suspicion of communist spies working as government members.

The Puritans were a group of people who separated from the Church of England and moved across the Atlantic to Purify the Roman Catholic Church, as well as enforce the Puritan Religion and teachings.

The Puritans believed that all things were directed by God; however, they differed from the Catholic point of view because they did not believe that priests were superior, or holier, than the whole congregation. The majority of their teachings came from the old testimant, and emphasized how God could improve and improve their daily lives, as well as make them holier.


The Puritans crossed the Atlantic because they wanted to purify the Roman Cotholic Church and the new world gave them the perfect place to do that.
