Salem Witch Trials

The Salem Witch Trials of 1692 were the result of the pranks of a group of teenage girls. Some people of the town started saying that the girls might be “bewitched.” When the adults seriously wanted to know who had bewitched them, these girls named about 150 random residents of the community. Twenty-two “witches” were put to death, mostly by hanging.
