THE SALEM WITCH TRIALS

1692

 
 

Hello and welcome. This site was designed to be my project for the National History Day Fair of 2008. In this site is a summary of the events that took place during the Salem Witch Trials along with my own interpretation and analysis of the subject, including its significance and the relation it has to this year’s National History Day theme; Conflict & Compromise.
