Salem Witch Trials

salemexamofIt is that time of year–getting “colder than a witch’s . . .” and all that.  Talk turns to goblins, ghosts and witches.  It’s a good time for those in the legal world to study the Salem witch trials. 

The University of Missouri, Kansas City has a site that reproduces many of the documents pertaining to the trials. It also has biographies of the persons involved and even a Jeopardy! game with Salem witch trial categories.  Learn all about it at the site . . . or read The Crucible (available from Lemieux Library)–although the latter is not known for its historical accuracy.
