The Cause of Hysteria: Three Girls in Salem
Memorial

The cause of the Salem Witch Hunts began because three girls thought they had been put under a spell by Bridget Bishop. The motive behind this tale could have been anything; anger, boredom, etc. During our age no one would have believed them, but in the Puritan times the power of God was something to fear. Because of this circumstance, the people believed the children and convicted Mistress Bishop.
