The harrowing story of the hanging of witches in Colonial New England continues to haunt our present-day imagination. The trials and executions of witches in CT predated the more famous Salem witch panic by over 40 years. Hear the stories of some of the women and men accused, tried and executed as witches and learn how CT successfully controlled the spread of witch accusations long before Salem erupted in panic and violence.
