Marilynne Roach. The Salem Witch Trials

Six Women of Salem: The Untold Story of the Accused and Their Accusers in the Salem Witch Trials, and The Salem Witch Trials: A Day-by-Day Chronicle of a Community Under Siege are two outstanding books about the infamous trials written by Marilynne Roach. In her interview with Stan Mallow on the YouTube show Marilynne discusses both books. She explains how and where she researched them and gives us an up-close and personal look at the accused, their accusers, and daily happenings in the courthouse where the trials were held. We learn what life was like in Puritan Salem in the 1600s, the events that led up to people accusing their neighbors, friends, and family members of being witches and being possessed by the devil. We also learn the fate of the accused and the aftermath, once the trials ended.
