The Salem Witch Trials Through The Eyes of Others

I’ve written about the deaths of my ancestress Susannah Martin North and of threewitch_and_children great grand aunts in Salem, Massachusetts several times in this forum.

My first visit to the locations where they died in Salem left me feeling anger and disgust for focused at those who had murdered them and lied to accomplish their half-witted attacks on these innocent ladies.

Persecution seems to be a theme in the lives of my ancestors for centuries.  That discovery has caused me to visit and revisit books that discuss the society of their day as I struggle to understand the weakness of human knowledge and compassion.

The Salem Witch Trials are a favorite topic for late night reading because the world is asleep and I can reflect on the knowledge conveyed from the written word on this subject.
