In 1693, the village of Salem, Massachusetts was overcome with superstitious hysteria. At the peak of the madness some 150 people, male and female, were accused of being witches. 20 of them were killed.

IN SEARCH OF HISTORY ventures back 300 years to unravel the truth from the legends about the SALEM WITCH TRIALS. Discover how the accusers were always young girls not puritanical men, as most believe. See how the families of the victims were granted some financial restitution two decades after watching their loved ones killed. And perhaps most surprising of all, not one of the witches was burned at the stake; 19 were hanged and one was pressed to death.

Drawing extensively on Colonial era documents and accounts, and with testimony from leading scholars like Jane Kamensky of Brandeis University, SALEM WITCH TRIALS exposes the truth about one of the most infamous events in American history.
