Product Description
The story of hysteria in 1692, told in a little less than 2700 words.

A perfect reading to set up discussion of the modern American justice system and protections of the accused under the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th amendments.

Modern students can hardly fathom the methods of courts in that era: the use of torture to illicit confession, admission of "spectral evidence," the jailing of Dorcas Good, a five-year-old suspected of working with the Devil, and the pressing to death of Giles Cory, for refusing to enter a plea of guilt or innocence.

In my class we started discussion with this admonition from Sophocles: "The wise are always doubtful."
