History is like a game of telephone: an incorrect fact can be passed from person to person and become conventional wisdom. Through diligent research, historians strive to untangle these errors.
Join us during Salem Ancestry Days for an hour long, free virtual lecture given by our Department of Education.
In this talk, we’re going to discuss some misconceptions about the Salem witch trials, highlighting how mistakes are made, repeated, and eventually corrected. Where were the innocent victims executed? Were bored, teenage girls to blame? What is the ergot theory?
This presentation will take place on Zoom on Friday, April 21st at 6:00 PM EST. The presentation will be recorded and shared on the Salem Witch Museum YouTube page for future accessibility.
No registration is required for this event. The Zoom link will be posted here the day before the event!
