Program Description

Event Details

In January of 1692, a strange illness seized control of five young girls living in Salem Village, a contentious and divided town in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. When medical professionals couldn’t identify the illness, the town believed the girls had come "under an evil hand." Events soon spiraled out of control with local divisions and a splintered colonial government feeding the frenzy.
