Default The Salem witch hunts.

The perpetrators of these hunts and executions ( murder's) also believed in trolls and ogres. So they would
go out into the woods hunting for them but they never found any. Because they don't exist, but that didn't
stop them.

They were known for grabbing some innocent wandering homeless person and accuse them of being a troll.
Who would be coming after their children if they weren't stopped.
Like they did by grabbing any innocent woman and and falsely accusing her of being a witch.
Sometimes things and peoples righteous mob attitudes just never change.

Of course trolls and ogres exist, we have three right here.
And since they live forever, we're stuck with them.

Humm, perhaps we should capture them and burn them at the stake. One cannot ever be too careful.

Hmmmm, grabbing wandering innocent homeless types and falsely accusing innocent women and causing their deaths (by burning at the stake)? Sounds like a good reason to own a gun, with many shots, and never go walking in the woods alone. Just sayin'...

Oh yeah, and puritans. So pure, but so is crap, pure sh__. All the more reason to own guns, either many guns with only one shot or one gun with many shots.

Just think of the travesties that could have been avoided if people had just had more guns and refused to listen to pontificating buffoons.

Founding Fathers were smart enough to separate church and state but to little effect though as both are now pretty corrupt and fulla crap. It worked for a while but corruption settles in everywhere.

If the puritans had any idea of what they were doing wrong do you think they would have continued? Probably. In terms of evolution I think they died out pretty much like the Neanderthal did, which just might have been a good thing. limited tolerance groups don't seem to last too long, thankfully. Now I'm just sayin'.....

There are a couple of chapters about Salem and all of that stuff that was was going on there. In a book
I'm reading about the history of Massachusetts. Right now I'm reading about the old whaling industry that
was there out of Boston. A lot of those ships never came back, usually because of bad storms.

There is also a part about the old Springfield armory and how it came into being.

Now would be a good time to read a definitive book on the Salem Witch trials. It seems one Samuel Parrish bought a female slave in Barbadoes, named Tituba.

Tituba was a household slave, who worked closely with all the Parrish family. As with many coming from the Caribbean, Tituba was well into things related to Voodoo, witchcraft etc., in which she schooled the Parrish daughters.

Those girls started the accusations..and it spiraled out of control...

Not blaming Tituba so much as the adults there in the Salem environs, entertaining the mass hysteria.

BTW: The colonial town called Salem was renamed Danvers quite some time ago.

IG, did you know that the Continental Congress were the ones who wanted the Springfield armory to be built?
The muskets coming in from France for the Army were considered as poor quality. And we didn't need to
only rely on a foreign country for our arms.

They would dunk these women underwater until they confessed. To a bogus claim.
Samuel Isaia , a simple man farmer who only worked the dirt only to feed his family.
A very large man who who had disfigureing scars because of a fire so he wasn't very attractive.
And he gathered things from the woods at night.

He was feared as an ogre. If not for his wife and his children he would have been hung.
The book doesn't cover recent history, only up to the Civil War.
