Connecticut Witch Trials

Presentation by Jason Scappaticci, Historian

In 1692, the first "witch" of the Salem Witch Trials in Massachusetts was hanged.  Connecticut beat that injustice by about 45 years.  On may 26,1647, Alse Young, from Windsor, CT, purported to be the first person in Colonial America to be so sentenced, was executed as a witch.  By 1662, ten others in Connecticut-nine woman, two men-would follow to the same fate.  How did this come to occur in Connecticut? Attend this presentation to find out more.
