Have you ever heard of witches?  Sure you have.  They are mentioned in fantasy stories all the time.  Even the Harry Potter books have witches in them.  But do witches really exist?  Back hundreds of years ago, little girls in Salem, Massachusetts became ill.  When no one could figure out what was wrong with them, it was decided that witches had cast spells on them.  That started a witch hunt that resulted in many deaths.  What really happened?  It is a mystery to this day about what really went on in Salem.  But here are all the clues you will need to decide for yourself what happened.
