Thesis Statement

The madness of 1692 all began after the Massachusetts Bay Charter revocation and a small pox outbreak. These events instigated thoughts of change throughout the society. This revolution caused Salem Village to react with one of history's most infamous events; The Salem Witch Trials. After the hysteria and injustice, Massachusetts decided to create the Court of Oyer and Terminer, a court especially for the witch trials, in order to reform the corrupt society.
