History Girls

{February 14, 2011}   The Witchcraft Confession that Sparked the Salem Witch Trials via reddit.com

In 1691, four girls in Salem started to display what were considered strange physical symptoms including convulsions and choking. Tituba, a slave girl, prepared a remedy or a ‘witch-cake’ made of rye meal and urine in a bid to cure the girls but as a result, was arrested for witchcraft. Tituba confessed and implemented two other women along with her, Sarah Good, who was later executed, and Sarah Osborne who died in prison; both denied any involvement in witchcraft.
