I've read enough about the Salem Witch Trials, and other trials of that period to know that they happened, that the vast majority of those killed were women, and that they were overwhelmingly innocent of any charges.
There is a family in Connecticut, working to exonerate their ancestor, Mary Sanford, who was executed in 1662, for dancing around a bonfire and drinking wine. Her husband, also charged, was later acquitted.
Other than the sheer insanity of that whole period, what impressed me about the story, is the 14-year old descendent of Mary, Addie, who is working with her mom on this. Evidently, there are dimwits who have chosen to mock them for standing up for their family. To this, Addie responds:
“There are worse things than mockery, now, I’m not afraid to stand up when I see something wrong.”
“I’ve discovered myself by honoring Mary.”
And here is the rest of it.
