When Frank arrived, he learned the Penitentiary was unforgiving and broke spirits. “His lips were colorless, his fine teeth looked yellowish.

More than 20 people were executed by hanging and one man was pressed to death by stones being stacked on his chest.

When it came time to question her, the story she told was completely impractical. It seemed that Mrs. Wright was going to get convicted for sure, but there was no true evidence . If the women show the evidence to the men the play would end with Mrs. Wright being thrown in jail.

To understand Shakespearean sidekicks, one must first understand the hero and that they are not like modern heroes; however, Shakespeare’s heroes are the main focal point of the play or drama because they are of high social class but are corrupt in some fashion. Typically, heroes are seen as morally righteous and represent self-sacrifice for the greater good; on the other hand, Shakespeare’s heroes resemble the exact opposite. Bronwyn Williams, writer of the article “Action Heroes and Literate Sidekicks,” states that heroes “are usually male” (682) and “embody traditionally masculine characteristics such as physical strength, calmness under pressure, and stoicism” (684). Both the main heroes, Prince Hamlet and Macbeth, exemplify Williams’ aforementioned stereotypes and also are a concise

An accused witch was thrown in jail and called to plead their case in court. If said person does not confess to the crime of being a witch, they are presumed guilty and are scheduled to be hanged. For example, a report from History.com states, “Though Good and Osborn denied their guilt, Tituba confessed.
More than 20 people were eventually killed from either being hanged or just from the conditions that they were living in. The Crucible and the duke lacrosse case compare because of the lack of evidence used against them. Danforth, which was the judge in Salem and Michael Byron Nifong, which was the prosecutor of the lacrosse case, were trying everything they could to accuse the people of their courts. For example, Danforth used what he heard based off Abigail Williams, which was a key part of the trials to accuse innocent people such as John Proctor or Elizabeth Proctor who were innocent.

They were burned, stretched,crushed, swam; many methods were used and a lot of the time the odds weren’t in the accused’s favor. “More than 200 people were accused, and 24 died; 19 were hanged, four died in prison, and one man, Giles Corey, was pressed to death.” The accused that died as witches didn’t have their deaths recorded, they were lost in time and only documents from Salem give evidence that these handful of people died.
Once the individual confessed they were no longer facing execution, but they still faced imprisonment. Multiple accused individuals died while they were in prison, due to the terrible conditions. During the time of imprisonment the accused people were said to have been tortured and even denied water to try and get them to confess to being witches. One common story that is spoken with the Salem Witch Trials really shows how far they went with the situation.
