Why Connecticut is Exonerating Witches

Little-known victims of witch trials may finally receive justice


In 1642 colonial Connecticut adopted a list of 12 capital crimes, which included murder, kidnapping, treason—and witchcraft. Five years later Alse Young was the first person recorded in colonial America to be executed for the crime of witchcraft. On May 26th 1647 she was hanged on the grounds of the Hartford meeting house, now the site of Old State House. Ten other people were executed for witchcraft in Connecticut and more than 30 people were indicted for it between 1647 and 1697. More than 375 years after Young was executed, her absolution may be nigh.

Last month a judiciary committee of the state legislature agreed to consider a resolution that would exonerate those accused of witchcraft in Connecticut. At a hearing on March 1st William Schloat, a nine-year-old, testified that he wished he had a time machine so he could help the accused. John Kissel, a Republican state senator, wondered about the state’s role in any exoneration, since the trials took place before the United States existed, when Connecticut was a colony: “Once you go down that path, where does it end?” Luther Weeks, a descendant of a deacon who may have been involved in the prosecutions, countered that the state had no issue celebrating the positive aspects of colonial history; it needed to acknowledge the dark side, too.

Many accused of witchcraft were vulnerable. Unmarried pregnant woman were frequent targets. Young, a new arrival, may have been targeted because some thought she caused an outbreak of influenza. Beth Caruso, co-founder of the Connecticut Witch Trial Exoneration Project, made up of amateur historians and descendants, says her husband’s ancestor was found guilty of bewitching a gun that had accidentally killed someone three years earlier, even though she was not there. Some may have been coerced into confessing. Many met their end at the gallows. Others faced the ducking test: suspected witches were dropped into water; the innocent sank and the guilty floated.

Sarah Jack, co-host of “Thou Shalt Not Suffer”, a witch-trial podcast, discovered three years ago that she was a descendant of Winifred Benham, the last person accused of witchcraft in Connecticut. “I was confused,” she says. “I had no idea there were more witch trials in New England outside of Salem.” Schoolchildren learn about the witch trials that took place in neighbouring Massachusetts. Arthur Miller, a playwright, used the trials of 1692 as an allegory of the anti-Communist panic. Salem, the heart of the hysteria, has embraced its history and become a kitschy, witchy tourist spot, with plenty of wands for sale.

Massachusetts has made several efforts to atone. In 1702 the General Court of Massachusetts declared the trials unlawful. A decade later the state overturned the convictions. In 1957 and 2001 more alleged witches were exonerated. Thanks to the efforts of children working on a history project, the last accused witch in Massachusetts was cleared of wrongdoing last summer. Also last year Nicola Sturgeon, then Scotland’s first minister, issued a posthumous apology to the thousands of people persecuted as witches in Scotland.

But in Connecticut efforts have been successful only on the local level. The town council in Windsor, where Young lived, exonerated her in 2017. Proponents of the bill hope a history trail remembering those accused would be meaningful. Some say lawmakers have more pressing matters to deal with than exonerating those dead for nearly four centuries. Jane Garibay, who introduced the bill in the state’s House of Representatives, says exoneration has been a long time coming, and that any injustice is worth putting right. “It was a wrong,” she says. The bill is “saying we’re sorry”.

There is something going on for you financially this week that encourages you to take a greater risk. My advice is that before you jump into anything having to do with money, take a breath and check out all of the angles, Cancer. You may hit it big but be very sure you have all of the necessary information. Then cash in!

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)

How zippy can one Leo be? You are a gravitation force that seems to pull everyone into your orbit. Cast a wide net and find those who can help you launch some of your great ideas forward. You have the power and the enthusiasm to move mountains. So don’t procrastinate. Make the greatest first impression possible.

And with your acumen and enthusiasm, you may just ascend to the top of your career … or at least go much further than you expect at this time. Apply whatever you have to the task at hand and be sure that you get full credit for all of your contributions.


Your itchy traveling feet must be scratched now, Sagittarius. Explore new places. Find ways to get out of your routine and see the world with fresh eyes. There are places to go and people to meet – the more unique and informative the better. You never know what adventure can bring both in the present and in the future.


Your feelings cannot be contained. Your passions are on display. Allow yourself the space to make any large emotion heard but do it so that maximizes your ability to integrate it into your core being. It gives you more balance and control especially in deep areas of your life. These are intense (and important) times, Capricorn.


Whether in business or in pleasure, the way to get things done and get the results you want often have to do with personal relationships. This is a great time to strengthen them, Aquarius, because you have greater acumen and intrinsically know what others are seeking and what they need. Now is time to get  enthusiasm going.


Pisces are feeling stronger and full of optimism now and why not? You have the ability to go the distance in any situation and seem to have reserves of extra oomph when you need it. See what you need to accomplish in life and who you need to help out. You get all of these puzzle pieces together just in time.
