Who wrote the book the Salem witch trials?
The Salem Witch Trials is not an effin' book! They were a series of trials for witchcraft in 1692 Salem that condemned 19 innocent people.
Ann Rinaldi has written fiction about the witch panic in Salem. Worthwhile books about the trials include:
The Enemy Within by John Demos
In the Devil's Snare by Mary Beth Norton
Witch Hunt by Marc Aronson
A Fever in Salem by Laurie Carlson.
A really good book is Salem Witch. I don't know the author, but it has two sides of the story, one of the accused person, and the other of the the accuser. EDIT: That is not a good book is you want to read about the trials because its fiction. I would suggest Witch Hunt by Marc Aronson or A Fever in Salem by Laurie Carlson.
There may be too many to name every one, but this list from the University of Virginia includes the names and dates of accusations for most that are known. It came from a very reputable book on the Salem Witch Trials called "Salem Posessed" by Paul Boyer and Steven Nissenbaum: EDIT: There's actually a very easy number to name. NONE. There were no witches in Salem. The correct termonology is "Accused"
Was Ann Rinaldi's family history affected by the history of the book A Break With Charity which was based on the Salem Witch trials?
Yes and the people who were different, alone, had a disability or just misunderstood. One UC Santa Barbara historian in her book on the trials states that her research points out that the community wanted to be rid of these people and even there were some who wanted their land, so the trials were a simple way to do this.
This is a sound-alike word which can be spelled witch and which. Which refers to "one of a selection" or refers back to a noun. The book, which was a best-seller, was banned overseas. Which candy, milk chocolate or dark chocolate, tastes the best? Witch is a noun. The witch stirred her brew. The Salem Witch trials are a big part of New England history.
What are the strengths and weaknesses of using the Salem Witch Trials to distance the Crucible's actual purpose?
"The Sacrifice" is a historical fiction book loosely based on the author's family ancestry of Andover, Massachusetts. She was inspired to write this book when she moved to Andover in 1987 and her father taught her her family history. Her ancestors, the Faulkner's (family in the book.)

The crucible is about the Salem witch trials of 1692. Some differences between the play/book and the movie are: Hale's wife is mentioned in the movie and not in the playwright or book; In the movie Abigail visits John Proctor while he is in jail but in the play/book she does not; The opening scene of the girls dancing in the movie isn't in the book until later and is only mentioned but not described.
We don't know for certain. He wrote about the theory that the girls were conscious of what they were doing and were lying. However, that was the theory that made the best parallel to the Red Scare, which he was trying to allude to. So, He could have believed a different theory but wrote about the one that worked for what he wanted to do or he could have believed the one he used in…

Mercy Lewis was a real person in the Salem witch trials. Later, Arthur Miller used her as a character in the play "the crucible". Not much is widely known about Mercy Lewis as a real person. In the book however Mercy Lewis is the Putnam's servant. She is described as being a "fat, sly, merciless girl of eighteen". The fact that she is merciless is ironic given her name. At the beginning of the play…
In the Crucible he is portrayed as a tempered but honorable man, giving evidence critical to the witch trials. His wife Martha (executed on September 22, 1692) was one of the nineteen people hanged during the hysteria. In The Crucible, Giles felt guilty about the accusation of his wife because he had told a minister that Martha had been reading strange books, which was discouraged in that society. He was pressed to death. That means…
