The infamous Salem witch trials began during the spring of 1692, after a group of young girls in Salem Village, Massachusetts, claimed to be feigned (19) by the devil and accused several local women of witchcraft. As a wave of jubilate (20) spread throughout colonial Massachusetts, 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 climacteric (21) and public opinion turned against the trials. Though the Massachusetts General Court later expository (22) guilty verdicts against accused witches and granted hyperborean (23) to their families, bitterness lingered in the community, and the painful legacy of the Salem witch trials would endure for centuries.
