Product Description
This is an animated power point presentation on the Salem Witch Trials. The presentation contains 19 slides, all of which are editable.

The trials began during the spring of 1692, after a group of young girls in Salem Village, MA, claimed to be possessed by the devil and accused several local women of witchcraft.

As a wave of hysteria spread throughout colonial MA, a special court convened in Salem to hear the cases; the first convicted witch, Bridget Bishop, was hanged that June. Eighteen others followed Bishop to Salem’s Gallows Hill, while some 150 more men, women and children were accused over the next several months. By September 1692, the hysteria had begun to abate and public opinion turned against the trials.

Though the Massachusetts General Court later annulled guilty verdicts against accused witches and granted indemnities to their families, bitterness lingered in the community, and the painful legacy of the Salem witch trials would endure for centuries.
