Puritanism characterized early Salem, so it was just a matter of time before accusations of witchcraft began to spread. Over 200 people were accused in the late 1600s witchcraft trials (persecution that was now unique to America, as opposed to a more liberal Europe), but only 19 were executed by hanging. Many innocent people were tortured or executed, but the aftermath directly led to a milestone in United States history.
"If you're going to fully embrace the paranormal side of Salem, it's best to do it at night...and with a drink in your hand!"
