Salem Witch Trials


Salem Witch Trials

Salem. 1692. The events that took place in the town of Salem and nearby towns in Massachusetts will be forever regarded as one of our young nation's most tarnished moments in history. We won't forget. We can't forget.

Since 1999, this site has served to chronicle the events that took place during one of the darkest moments in U.S. history. Witchcraft? Voodoo? Free speech before the Consitution? Political agendas? Personal vendettas? This website covers plenty. From a scholarly perspective detailing the events that led to what is widely regarded as a judicial travesty to the biographies of the afflicted, the accused and the victims, we have it all here. In 2007, we even added videos.

Naturally we also have a detailed timeline and our popular Salem Quiz. This site has been featured on CourtTV.com, CBS News and Discovery Channel but it's also a site that features you. We present the facts and you will hopefully come to your own conclusion as you delve deeper into the Salem Witch Trials at SalemWitchTrials.com.

Do explore around. You will also find Salem travel tips, information on witch costumes, and an online bookstore. And, yes, many of your basic questions about the Salem trials can be found -- and answered -- on our witch trial FAQ section as well. So get started. History waits for no one.
