Goode Rebeka: Trial by Fire

Thursday, October 11, 2018

Historical reenactor Jessica Michna brings the Salem Witch Trials to life.

It was a new world. The settlers from England had gained a foothold in the verdant land called “Amerika.” Old traditions would be laid aside, new ones instituted. Greed, jealousy, suspicion would still persist. Were these at the root of the “Salem Witch Trials?” Innocent residents of Salem, Massachusetts were tried and many executed in perhaps the most infamous chapter in early American history. Meet Goode Rebeka, an elderly woman hanged as a witch in 1692, but was she? Perhaps by the end of the program you will be able to answer that question.
