Religious persecution is something I find deeply offensive, particularly when persued by people who claim to be followers of the messiah, Jesus. Yet, it has happened, and if we are committed to ensuring it never happens again we must remember. So here is some archive information on the Salem witchcraft trials, something I am truly sorry for.

With a Halloween theme of "Witches and Wizards," I certainly have to include a blog on the notorious Salem, Massachusetts witch trials. My husband and I have several ancestors who lived in Massachusetts during the witch hunts and though none of them lived in Essex County, they lived near enough to know about them. I wonder what they thought. Did they believe the accused were actually witches and warlocks, or did they think the whole thing utter nonsense? I suppose I'll never know, but I'm hoping they kept a level head during the months of mass hysteria. "Examination of a witch" by Thompkins H. Matteson 1853 Between February of 1692 and May of 1693, nineteen people were hanged, one man met his death under a heavy load of rocks, and five died in jail. Over a hundred more were accused and imprisoned. Some were condemned, but not executed, and some even confessed to the charges of witchcraft. However, many of them, such as, Rebecca Nurse, Susannah Martin, Sarah Wildes, Elizabeth Howe, Sarah Good, and Bridget Bishop, stood before their accusers and vehemently proclaimed their innocence. With such goings on, it's no wonder that Salem, Massachusetts is considered one of America's most haunted cities. Take the Old Salem Jail, for instance. This is one of the most haunted buildings in Salem. In this building, a black figure is said to walk through walls, while various other apparitions meander around and throughout the structure. There are those who believe that, besides many victims of the witch trials, the spirits of several civil war soldiers reside here as well. Inside the Joshua Ward House, the spirit of Sheriff George Corwin, who rounded up the accused witches, haunts this place, and so does Giles Corey. Giles is the man who was pressed to death under a pile of rocks after spending five months inside a filthy prison, locked in chains. And, oh, by the way? George conducted (by direct order) the torture inflicted upon Giles in an effort to make the man confess. Giles never did, though. What an unlikely pair they must make...especially since Corey's last words in mortality is purported to have been, “Damn you Sheriff. I curse you and Salem." Now the interesting thing about this curse is that every succeeding Sheriff occupying the office either died from a heart attack while serving, or contracted some type of blood ailment that forced him to retire. . 1720-Title page of "A Modest Enquiry into the Nature of Witchcraft" Speaking of curses, Sarah Good, one of the victims of the Salem Witch trials, said to the Reverend Nicholas Noyes (minister and participant in the Salem witch trials), "God will give you blood to drink." In the year 1717, the Noyes died from an internal hemorrhage and choked on his own blood, thus fulfilling Sarah's prophecy. Any thoughts on the Salem Witch Trials? I'd love to hear them...

https://flic.kr/p/8PmJ92 | Salem Common | So I figured the scary place to be for Halloween would definitely be Salem Massachusetts. Well I was let down. The place was over run by loud goth punk high school kids. There were decoration lights everywhere with plastic ghost tour banners. There was even a carnival with rides! Augh! Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin would be more scary than this! Good Grief.

Salem Witch Trials Memorial Cemetery - a day in Salem. Read an article today which stated that the "black death," epidemic in the middle ages was caused when they burned witches and their cats in a frenzy, causing the rodent/flea population to swell...stupid men in power didn't know anything about disease (science).

Salem Witch Trials Memorial. Cemetery. Graveyard. Inspiration for Liberty Smith murder mystery.
Salem Witch Trials Memorial Cemetery: Luther himself held an aggressive sermon against witches in 1526. Within five minutes, his parishioners in Wittenberg heard him say five times that witches must be killed. He requested that witches should be killed by fire. However, he wanted nothing less or more than punishment for a crime that he perceived as a real one. Like murder or theft, the crime of witchcraft should also be punished. ("Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live." - Exodus 22:18)

Giles Corey 1621-1692. Accused of witchcraft. This stone is one of twenty on a memorial wall bench at Burying Point Cemetery, Salem, Essex, Massachusetts.
Salem Witch Trials - only American to be executed by pressing.Giles Corey was an 80 year old farmer who lived with his wife Martha about 5-6 miles from Salem Village.
Giles Corey, born sometime in 1611, was accused of witch craft by Mercy Lewis. Corey neither denied nor confessed to the accusation, opting instead to undergo a form torture known as "peine forte et dure." British law had already discontinued the practice in 1692, but this fact was unknown to the judges of Salem. So, by decree of Sheriff George Corwin, Giles Corey was pressed to death.
Part of the monument to the victims of the Salem Witch Trials. Giles Corey was the only one to be pressed to death.
1692 ~ Giles Corey. Pressed to death during the Salem witch trials...pressed to death? not a good way to go.
Giles Corey (1621 – September 19, 1692) was accused of witchcraft along with his wife Martha Corey during the Salem Witch Trials. After being arrested for witchcraft, Corey refused to enter a plea of guilty or not guilty. He was subjected to pressing in an effort to force him to plea, but instead died after two days.
Tell Giles Corey how it doesn't hurt anyone to let people believe whatever they want. 1692 ~ Giles Corey. Pressed to death during the Salem witch trials. ---for real---
Giles Corey, accused of practicing witchcraft during the infamous Salem witch trials, was by court order subjected to peine forte et dure, a form of torture in which the subject is pressed beneath an increasingly heavy load of stones in an attempt to force him enter a plea. He refused &, in essence, did not submit to or recognize the authority or jurisdiction of the court. He died after about 3 days of pressing; he was never convicted. Burying Point Cemetery, Salem, Massachusetts
1692...accused of being a witch, he was pressed to death slowly with large stones.
