The Salem Witch Trials. Dylan Discher Mrs. Martin’s 2 nd Period 10-13-11. What's a witch ?. Witch- somebody with magic powers: somebody, especially a woman, who is supposed to have magical or wonder-working powers that are most often used to cause harm
Mrs. Martin’s 2nd Period
The puritans being extremely religious & superstitious had not attempted to find a scientific explanation for the symptoms of the girls that were bewitched. So they blamed people.
I thing that the trials were an unnecessary event in our history. It’s a shame that it happened. If I was accused of practicing witchcraft I would attempt to leave town if possible. I wouldn't want to be caught up in all that mess!
