The Salem Witch Trials and their Connections to Casco Bay and the Maine Frontier

Drawing from his recent book, A Storm of Witchcraft and the American Experience, Emerson "Tad" Baker, award-winning author and professor of History at Salem State University will discuss the many connections between the Salem witch trials and the Maine frontier. In 1692 more than 150 people would be accused of witchcraft and 25 would die in the Salem witch trials, the largest witchcraft outbreak in American history.

Lectures begin at 1:30 PM at the Wishcamper Center, Bedford St. on the USM Portland Campus, with parking in the USM Bedford St. garage. Lectures are free, though donations are gratefully accepted.

Presented by Spirits Alive of Eastern Cemetery. Spirits Alive is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to the preservation of historic Eastern Cemetery (founded 1668) at the foot of Munjoy Hill on Congress St.
