Revisiting the Salem Witch Trials: May thy souls rest in peace
By Erin Crowell
October settles over the New England coast, bathing its small towns in
warm colors of red, orange and gold. I chase the foliage by car,
taking a 2,500 mile road trip out East through New York, Vermont and
down along the shores of Connecticut and Rhode Island.
With Halloween fast approaching, a stop in Salem, Massachusetts seems
appropriate. So I plug the address into the GPS on my
dashboardMargaret, as Ive named itand let her even, monotone voice
guide me to the coastal town famous for the witch trials of 1692.
