Info

Bruce Henley, tour guide and teacher at the Webb-Deane-Stevens house, will  concentrate on the 17th century story of witchcraft in Connecticut, with a 21st century postscript.  

This talk will cover the Puritan religion,  beliefs about witchcraft, the first and last   accused, and the Hartford and Fairfield  panics.  It will be peppered with specific cases and personalities like King James Ist, Gov. John Winthrop Jr. and the Rev. Cotton Mather among others.  Henley will also note how Connecticut and Massachusetts colonies differed in their handling of trials.
