“Burn! Burn her!”

“Quiet! quiet! Quiet! There are ways of telling whether she is a witch.”

…..

“Tell me, what do you do with witches?”

“Burn!”

“Burn, burn them up!”

“And what do you burn apart from witches?”

“More witches!”

“Wood!”

“So, why do witches burn?”

[pause]

“B–… ’cause they’re made of wood?”

……

“Does wood sink in water?”

“No, no.”

“It floats! It floats!”

“Throw her into the pond!”

“The pond!”

Beginning in February of 1692, The Salem Witch Trials heard the cases of more than 200 people accused of witchcraft and resulted in the hangings of 19 who were found guilty. For Centuries people have been curious and frightened over the idea of black magic, because there is nothing more truly terrifying than the unknown. In memory of the witches and the unknowns who lost their lives to ignorance, please enjoy our portrayal of the Classic Witch.
