The Salem Witch Trials
Presented by Historian and Archivist Mickey DiCamillo

When There Were Witches
In January of 1692, a strange illness seized control of five young girls. When medical professionals couldn’t identify the illness, the girls were believed to be possessed. But, did the girls bring this trouble upon themselves or were people in the community casting black magic across the town? Clergy, politicians, and other community members all attempted to answer this question, and their answers sent the region into hysteria.
 
The Salem Witch Trials are one of the most iconic events in United States history and remain relevant more than 300 years after the final accused witch hanged on Gallows Hill. However, the events surrounding the trials and the motivations of the participants remain habitually misunderstood. Archivist and historian Mickey DiCamillo unravels the events of 1692 with help from archival documents from the period. Guests also will have the opportunity to interact with transcripts from the early interrogations of people accused of witchcraft and see firsthand the difference between presumed innocent and presumed guilty.  (60-minute virtual presentation followed by 15-minute question and answer period.)
