Witchcraft from pre-midieval times to New England in 1692

Included is what brought the horrible Witchcraft hysteria to the people of Danvers, Mass. (Now Salem, Mass.) Many had relatives who endured and were part of the Witchcraft trials, including some who were put to death. Some had to pay 100 or more gold pieces to the English Crown to get their loved ones out of jail – for the crime of witchcraft. A horrible time in American history.
