1692: Salem witch trials

The Salem witch trials, which began in 1692 (also known as the Salem witch hunt and the Salem witchcraft episode), resulted in a number of convictions and executions for witchcraft in Salem Village, Massachusetts. It was the result of a period of factional infighting and Puritan witch hysteria which led to the deaths of 19 people (mostly female but also male) and the imprisonment of scores more. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salem_witch_trials [May 2006]
