In 1692 Salem, Massachusetts, children were treated as adults, religion was an integral part of the government, people were vindictively seeking power and land, and they uperstitiously feared the unknown surrounding wilderness. All of these actions led to the Salem Witch trials where nineteen men and women and two dogs were convicted and hanged for witchcraft.
Based on these historical people and real events, The Crucible, by Arthur Miller, is a dramatic allegory which echoes yet today.
