The Salem Witch Trials, with lies, manipulation and so much more. Abigail should be held responsible for the imprisonment and execution of innocent people. Abigail was spreading rumors and messing with bad spirits, also lying about Elizabeth haunting her during trial.
Have you ever killed some one? Over a 100 years ago Lizzie's parents were brutally murdered by someone and the only person they focused on was the daughter lizzie borden. Lizzie Borden was the axe murderer no doubt about it because all the signs pointed to no other than Lizzie herself. The reason I think Lizzie killed her parents was because she didn't like her stepmother and thought if she didn't kill her father her father would think its her. Lizzie is a true mastermind to have gotten away with murder because there is no other explanation to Lizzie's parents brutal death.
“Lizzie Borden took an axe, And gave her mother forty whacks, When she saw what she had done, She gave her father forty-one” (Linder). Lizzie Borden, daughter of Andrew and Sarah Borden, was born on July 19, 1860 in Fall River, Massachusetts. Her older sister Emma Borden was born on March 1, 1851. They lived a happy and normal life until the unexpected death of their mother, Sarah Borden. Three years later Andrew Borden was remarried to Abby Durfee Gray. Even though the two girls were never close with Abby Borden they began to call her their mother.

Another month passed and the girls tried to blame Martha Corey. Even as Martha were at a high level of the puritan community, they just believed that Satan dug that far in to Salem. Through the year, several people were executed by fault of being witches, even if they were innocent.

Another reason for the salem witch trial hysteria was the lying,acting,and Jealousy. Bridget bishop acting like she was in pain so people can believe her.she also moved in a weird way. Bridget did those movements so it can make her story more believable. Bridget bishop was intoxicated by her success people believes her. Later that same month she was hanged on the tenth of July.
Witchcraft. The Epidemic In the summer 1692 the town of Salem, Massachusetts spiraled into a witchcraft epidemic, 19 people were hanged and 1 person was pressed to death. People started to get marks and rashes on their body and when a doctor couldn 't even explain it they started accusing people of witchcraft.

In My mind the whole Witch hunt has been a popularity contest People are trying to rack up kills like a Call Of Duty session are the Hunger Games. “ Abigail Williams, fingered 41 different witches for attacking her’’( Schanzer 56).

Many events in history have gone unanswered and one of those events was the killing of the Bordens. The book has three separate parts to it and they are all very well detailed. The Borden family consisted of Andrew, the father, Abby the stepmother to Andrew 's daughters, Lizzie and Emma, Andrews two daughters and Bridget, the house maid. They all lived together in Fall River until on August 17, 1892 when Bridget was out cleaning windows, Emma was out of town, and Lizzie was in the back yard a gruesome killing happened. Arnold R. Brown wrote this book primarily to uncover the truth about who killed the couple while either proving or disclaiming theories that have surrounded the story.
Betty Parris, Abigail Williams, and Ann Putnam had illnesses that the a doctor just couldn't be explain. The girls would cry, fall down, and have fits. They first accused a slave named Tituba, said that a man came to her and told her to sign a book. Authorities believed that it was the Devil himself that told Tituba to follow his orders. In March, they accused Martha Corey, a well respected citizen of the community.
