1. Where were the condemned of the Salem Witch Trials hanged? They were hanged on Gallow Hill

2. What three things could be marked as starting the Salem Witch Trials? 1. The young Betty Parris and her cousin, Abigail Williams, started having strange behaviors. After a moment, people concluded they were being posessed by Satan. 2. Betty and Abigail accused Tituba, a slave, and two others women, of being witches. 3. Other children, and even some adults, started to accuse more people of witchcraft

3. Two known people who lived within Salem during the trials were Elizabeth and Samuel Parris. What was their young daughter called and what happened to her that possibly began the accusations of witchcraft? Elizabeth, or Betty, began having stranges convulsions. She would also say blasphemous things and act very strangely, like she was in some kind of a transe. When a priest would play beside her, it would only make things worse, which lead to the conclusion that she was being posessed.

4. The Indian slave, Tituba, slave of Samuel Parris, was one of the first accused witches. When was she arrested? On February 29th

5. Name two other women who were arrested and accused around the same time as Tituba? Goody Sarah Good and Goody Sarah Osborne

6. Who was the second person to actually confess to being a witch, and what did she admit to doing? Abigail Hobbs, who confessed practising witchcraft

7. Jails approached capacity and the colony "teetered on the brink of chaos" when Governor Phips returned from England. Fast action, he decided, was required. What did he do? He set up a Court of Oyer and Terminer, which was composed of 7 magistras who would have the duty to judges the said witches

8. Giles Corey was imprisoned with his accused wife for five months until he was served his death sentence, yet he was not hanged. How was he killed? He was pressed to death with heavy rocks

9. Which play was written about the Salem Witch Trials and who wrote it? Arthur Miller wrote the play The Crucible

Bonus

What is your opinion on the Salem Witch trials? How do you think it has affected societies views today?

I think that the Salem Witch trials was pure horror and so full of lies! People found a way of punishing their neightbours only, most of the time, because they didn't like them. The young girls, even though they were believe to be posessed, would have simply been diagnosed today of collective hysteria. This thing lead to so many deaths, it's simply revulsing.

As for our societies views... I'm not sure if it really affected us or if our mentality simply changed, but one thing is sure, we are now more open to those who would claim being witches, we would more likely not believe them.

1. Where were the condemned of the Salem Witch Trials hanged?
They were hanged on Gallows Hill on August 19, 1692.

2. What three things could be marked as starting the Salem Witch Trials?
Nine-year-old Elizabeth Parris and eleven-year-old Abigail Williams began to exhibit strange behavior. The people were unable to understand why the girls where like this, so they consulted a physician. The physician concluded that the girls were under the influence of Satan. The children then blamed Tituba, Parris' Carib Indian slave, as witches. This is what started the whole problem.

3. Two known people who lived within Salem during the trials were Elizabeth and Samuel Parris. What was their young daughter called and what happened to her that possibly began the accusations of witchcraft?
Elizabeth Parris. She started strange behaviors, such as blasphemous screaming, convulsive seizures, trance-like states and mysterious spells. Within a short time, several other Salem girls began to demonstrate similar behavior.

4. The Indian slave, Tituba, slave of Samuel Parris, was one of the first accused witches. When was she arrested?
On February 29, 1692.

5. Name two other women who were arrested and accused around the same time as Tituba?
Sarah Good and Sarah Osborne.

6. Who was the second person to actually confess to being a witch, and what did she admit to doing?
Abigail Hobbs confessed.

7. Jails approached capacity and the colony "teetered on the brink of chaos" when Governor Phips returned from England. Fast action, he decided, was required. What did he do?
Governor Phips set up a special Court of Oyer and Terminer comprised of seven judges to try the witchcraft cases.

8. Giles Corey was imprisoned with his accused wife for five months until he was served his death sentence, yet he was not hanged. How was he killed?
Giles Corey was pressed to death for refusing a trial.

9. Which play was written about the Salem Witch Trials and who wrote it?
Arthur Miller's THE CRUCIBLE (1953)

Bonus

What is your opinion on the Salem Witch trials? How do you think it has affected society’s views today?
I really don’t think it has affected society’s view. I believe that’s the problem. It seems that once someone was called the witch the whole family had to be examined. We kind of do this everyday when it comes to the media. They are the ones who tells us who is the “witch” evil person, or how we should judge these people by their views. In reality we really haven’t changed from 1692.

What is your opinion on the Salem Witch trials? How do you think it has affected societies views today?

The Salam Wich Trials was an astoundingly dreadful time, whre the community jumped on the hype of several board teenagers costing many their untimely deaths. There were no trials for quite a while, so if you were accused, that was it, which was appaling.
I dont think that it has much of an affect in this day and age, although the trials could have aided in todays court trials - innocentuntil proven guilty!

What is your opinion on the Salem Witch trials? How do you think it has affected societies views today? I believe that the Salem witch trials were unfair and unjust. Women were accused of being witches for the most ridicules reasons. The trials were quick and unfair. The accused had no way of defending themselves and died because of it. The society today has been affected because although everyone says that todays society is more relaxed, we still tend to condemn the things we consider wrong or strange.

I am disgusted that those young girls would actually accuse people like that for attention. I think that a lot more people would be dead if it were still around today.Alot of people do practise types of magic because they believe it is real when it isn’t.

The Salem Witch Trials were very unfair to the peole who were suspected.They had no real proof that they had done anything yet they got punished anyway. It has affected the societies present views by showing them that it isn't right to accuse people for thhings they couldn't have done.

1. Where were the condemned of the Salem Witch Trials hanged? (2pts)
The condemned were hung on Gallows Hill near Salem Village.

2. What three things could be marked as starting the Salem Witch Trials? (4pts)
There are many things that could have lead to the start of the witch hunts. There were two clans (the Putnams and the Porters) competing for control of the town, which let to a lot of unrest in the village. When young girls starting becoming sick and the village doctor could do nothing about it, he suggested that their sickness might be supernatural; and since a book had just come out describing a similar occurrence being caused by witchcraft, the bored teenagers ran with that explanation. Since there was a frontier war going on, which had everyone convinced that the devil was near; the adults were quick to believe in the witch theory.

3. Two known people who lived within Salem during the trials were Elizabeth and Samuel Parris. What was their young daughter called and what happened to her that possibly began the accusations of witchcraft? (3pts)
The Parris’ daughter was named Betty. They also brought their niece Abagail Williams. During the winter of 1692, Betty became sick. She was complaining of pain and fever, and was running around, diving under furniture. A book published by Cotton Mather, described witchcraft that had been suspected against another woman, and her symptoms were similar to Betty’s. The town doctor could not cure Betty and her friends, so he suggested a supernatural cause.

4. The Indian slave, Tituba, slave of Samuel Parris, was one of the first accused witches. When was she arrested? (2pts)
Tituba’s arrest warrant was issued on February 29.

5. Name two other women who were arrested and accused around the same time as Tituba? (2pts)
Sarah Good and Sarah Osborn joined Tituba as the first three to be accused.

6. Who was the second person to actually confess to being a witch, and what did she admit to doing? (4pts)
Deliverance Hobbs was the second to confess to witchcraft. She confessed to the Devil commanding her to pinch three of the girls, and to flying on her pole to attend a witch’s Sabbath.

7. Jails approached capacity and the colony "teetered on the brink of chaos" when Governor Phips returned from England. Fast action, he decided, was required. What did he do? (5pts)
Governer Phips created a new court of “oyer and terminer” to try only witchcraft cases.

8. Giles Corey was imprisoned with his accused wife for five months until he was served his death sentence, yet he was not hanged. How was he killed? (2pts)
Giles Corey refused a trial and was therefore pressed to death under heavy stones.

9. Which play was written about the Salem Witch Trials and who wrote it? Arthur Miller's (2pts)
Arthur Miller’s The Crucible was a play based on the Salem Witch Trials.

What is your opinion on the Salem Witch trials? How do you think it has affected societies views today?

While our society today has a more accepting view of what they don’t understand than the Puritans, there are still people who are very afraid of witchcraft and strive to keep it out of their community. The difference now, and the main thing to learn from the Salem Witch Trials, is that those accused now a days have a more effective system of law to lean on. The accused witches in Salem had no lawyer to help prove their innocence, and the courts allowed all evidence, no matter how ridiculous. Salem treated the accused guilty until proven innocent, now we see people as innocent until proven guilty. If someone was accused of witchcraft now, there would have to be evidence of harm before someone was arrested; and they would be arrested for the harm inflicted, not for being a witch. I think most people now look back at Salem with shame but I think that it is important to learn about what happened so that we can try to make sure nothing like that happens again.

1. Where were the condemned of the Salem Witch Trials hanged? (2pts)
Those who were condemned as witches were taken to Gallow's Hill, which was located just outside the town. 

2. What three things could be marked as starting the Salem Witch Trials? (4pts) 

The three things that mark the starting of the Salem Witch Trails were the accusations against Sarah Good, Sarah Osborne, and Tituba. Good was a homeless begger who often sought shelter and food from neighbors. At her trial, she was accused of rejecting Puritan ideas of self-control and discipline. Sarah Osborne rarely attended church, and the Puritans believed she had her own self-interests in mind when she remarried to an indentured servant. The town also disapproved of her attempts to control her son's inheritance from her previous marriage. Tituba, a black slave, was accused due to her ethnicity, as she was accused of attracting other girls to tales about sexual encounters with demons, swaying the minds of men, and fortune tellers. All three girls were outsiders in the community. 

3. Two known people who lived within Salem during the trials were Elizabeth and Samuel Parris. What was their young daughter called and what happened to her that possibly began the accusations of witchcraft? (3pts)

Elizabeth and Samuel Parris' daughter, Betty, was one of the original girls who accused Sarah Good, Sarah Osborne, and Tibuta of witchcraft. She and her cousin, Abigail, tinkered around with fortune telling, and fell ill shortly afterward. They complained of fever, hiding under furniture, barking like dogs, contorting their bodies, and screaming and crying in pain. When both prayer and a doctor couldn't heal their strange illness, it was believed witchcraft was responsible.

4. The Indian slave, Tituba, slave of Samuel Parris, was one of the first accused witches. When was she arrested? (2pts) 

Tituba was arrested on February 29, 1692 Tituba was arrested. This happened after a neighbor, Mary Sibley, recommended a witch's cake to reveal the name of the witches who were plaguing the town. She told Tituba to bake a rye cake with the victim's urine, and feed the cake to the dog, which was supposed to reveal the witches. When this didn't work, Tituba was eventually labeled one of the "Evil Hands."

5. Name two other women who were arrested and accused around the same time as Tituba? (2pts) 

Sarah Good and Sarah Osborne were both arrested around the same time as Tituba. All three girls were considered outsiders in the community, making them easy targets. 

6. Who was the second person to ac
tually confess to being a witch, and what did she admit to doing? (4pts)
Abigail Hobbs was the second person to confess to being a witch, pleading guilty to afflicting Mercy Lewis with the supernatural sickness, and another for covenanting with the Devil. She also accused several other people of witchcraft, including John Proctor, and George Burroughs. As prominent members of society, this meant the accusations had even reached higher up in the social hierarchy. 

7. Jails approached capacity and the colony "teetered on the brink of chaos" when Governor Phips returned from England. Fast action, he decided, was required. What did he do? (5pts)

Phips decided to create a new court, the "court of oyer and terminer," (meaning to hear and decide) to preside over the witchcraft cases so that other cases could be tried in the other courts. 

8. Giles Corey was imprisoned with his accused wife for five months until he was served his death sentence, yet he was not hanged. How was he killed? (2pts) 

Giles Corey refused to plead guilty or not guilty, which, at the time, meant that he could not be tried. To avoid people from cheating justice in this way, the legal procedure was "peine forte et dure," in which the prisoner is stripped naked, with a heavy board laid on his body. Rocks or boulders are then put on top of the blank of wood, called "pressing." This would be done until they pleaded one way or another. Corey continued to refuse to plead even after two days of being pressed, and eventually died on September 19, 1692.

9. Which play was written about the Salem Witch Trials and who wrote it? Arthur Miller's (2pts)

Arthur Miller wrote The Crucible about the Salem Witch Trials.
