Saybrook’s Witchcraft Trial of 1661

SAYBROOK’S WITCHCRAFT TRIAL OF 1661 by Donald Perreault. The year was 1661 and Saybrook faced the greatest crisis to the fledgling community. For three years the settlement had been rocked by a series of events that threatened their very existence. As these events played out suddenly accusations were being thrown around. Not just any accusations, but those of witchcraft. The ensuing witchcraft trial had all the ingredients of a town in crisis, a population looking for answers, and victims who were the perfect target. This little known event would be a turning point in the history of Saybrook. This booklet tells the fascinating story of one of New England’s earliest witchcraft trials and is based on a talk given by the author, Donald Perreault. Price includes Shipping & Handling
