Led by an Evil Spirit: Lesser-Known Witches of New England

January 28, February 25, March 24
Outside of the well-known witchcraft outbreak at Salem and Essex County in 1692, there were other cases that resulted in trials of people suspected of covenanting with the Devil in order to harm their neighbors.
