Examining the Salem Witch Trials: A Precinct 444 Halloween Special


In this special Halloween bonus episode, we take a step back in time to Colonial America to examine the Salem Witch Trials. Anna Muckenfuss leads us through all the twists and turns that the trial has to offer, including the unyielding religious-backed laws that gave citizens power and protection against witchcraft. Anna provides all the intricate details of not just the many trials from 1692 to 1693, but the events that led to them and some of the key figures involved.
