Adultery is one of the most common of the 10 commandments broken. Around 22% of adults have cheated on their partner. In The Crucible, John Proctor is seen as an honest and trustworthy man to turn to during the witch trials. The secret of John and Abigail’s affair is released and he is soon discredited as a respected resident. Although he is no longer respected, he is no longer believed to be a hero.
Lastly, the evidence that was shown in a map of Salem Village and Salem Town. I noticed that in Salem Village, there are a lot of accusers, not a lot of defenders and only two were accused of being a witch. While in Salem Town, there are a ton of defenders, little accusers but a lot of accused of being witches. It’s really weird because one side are accusers but the other side are defenders.
Pinckney had two wives which he probably made very happy and four children who probably adored him. In the end, Pinckney was a hero. He definitely died knowing that he had done something for his country, and hopefully was happy as it all ended. Pinckney was a very admirable man.
Blumberg explains how, "more than 200 people were accused of witch-craft." The Crucible has no facts on the ones who were hung or pushed, just false accusations. The town wanted written confessions from the accused people, and they were not going against what they believed to do so. They rather die from the beliefs, than to stay alive from a lie. Miller tries to explain, "The Crucible was an act of desperation" (1213).
Selectmen were elected town officials that helped enforce regulations meant to improve the safety of the town. They also screened adults wanting to adopt any orphans to ensure the child’s future wellbeing (Carr, page 98). Constables were also elected during town meetings. However, many elected constables were working men and could not volunteer as much as the position required so they would decline the job. This was so common that “In March 1781, not one of the twelve constables elected to office accepted”.
The Salem witch trials are remembered as one of the most disgraceful acts a village has ever committed. One of the main causes of these events are the bibliocentric views of the community at that time. People often called witch on their neighbors to get more land, or cried witch at someone they simply didn’t like. There were 19 hangings during the Salem Witch Trials and one of the main reasons for this was Reverend Parris. At the start of The Crucible, By Arthur Miller, you see that one of the central causes of the witch trials was because he was more concerned with his own reputation than the lives of others.

It was not a very arduous office, but very pleasantly remunerative. I seldom lose my temper; much more seldom indulge in dangerous indignation at wrongs and outrages; but I must be permitted to be rash here and declare, that I consider the sudden and violent abrogation of the office of Master in Chancery, by the new Constitution, as a--premature act; inasmuch as I had counted upon a life-lease of the profits, whereas I only received those of a few short years. But this is by the way.
However, it was established in the court hearing by Mr. Robinson’s previous lawyer Atticus Finch that Mayella's father is left handed. The county sheriff stated that no one called a doctor to inspect Mayella's injuries because, "It wasn't necessary, Mr. Finch. She was mighty banged up. Something sho' happened, it was obvious. " Is it not essential to consider the very real possibility that her left hand dominant father was instead the inflictor of the injuries?

Even so, Porthos had to admit he wasn 't pleased with his own behaviour these past few days. How could he have mistrusted the Captain? Treville was like a surrogate father, not only for him, but for the entire garrison. Treville was a just and honourable man, and Porthos should have remembered the Captain would never have accepted him if he didn 't truly belong. People often questioned the presence of some Musketeers in the regiment.
There are many similarities between the two court cases including the false accusation of rape, the involvement of a lynch mob, the fact that many times they were proven innocent, and that they were all very young. I’ve observed that false accusations of rape was very common in these types of trials, mostly because it was a very serious crime in the southern half of the United States, where racism was very common. Several times after the defendant is proven guilty, someone will come out and say that they were innocent, but often times it is too late for the accused. Most of this type of trial frequent lynch mobs and not just after, but they will try and get to them before they are even tried. Many of these cases are ended by a confession.
In 16th century England, witchcraft had a major impact on many lives. Back then they dealt with their problems, such as witchcraft very differently than what we do today, such as “tests“ barely anyone could pass or they tortured them to death. In this dark, horrible time many lives were taken. Men and women, although mostly women, were falsely accused of witchcraft or “black magic”. Witchcraft is the use of sorcery or magic, to have communication with the devil.
Introduction George Jacobs Sr. said, “You tax me for a wizard, you may as well tax me for a buzzard I have done no harm.” Although his words were true, many chose to either believe this hysteria or turn the other way. He died along with many other women and men. This was just the start of the many terrors of the Salem witch trials. Yet if you confessed to being a witch then you had a better chance of living, but if you denied you would automatically get hanged.
The Salem Witch Trials began in 1692 in Massachusetts. The trials began when young girls around Salem started acting up. They would start to scream and bark like a dog, fall to the floor, and would be spotted dancing in the woods. The accused witches had to be looked over carefully, the examiners would look for physical evidence, they would look for spectral evidence, have them recite the Lord's Prayer, or they would wait for them to confess.
