She afflicts me! She comes to me at night and torments me! She's a witch! Words such as these struck terror into the Salem townspeople in the spring of 1692 as hysterical young girls called out names. By summer, hundreds had been accused and imprisoned - defenseless against accusations of witchcraft in a society driven by superstition and fear. The court, formed to try the victims, acted quickly. Bridget Bishop was tried on June 2 and hanged on June 10 thereby setting the precedent for a summer of executions.
