The Hidden History of the American Witch | Guest Troy Taylor

Spread the love
In his new book, “One Night in Salem: The Hidden History of the American Witch,” Troy Taylor takes us back to when “witchcraft” came to America with the first European settlers. They had fled at a time when thousands were being accused, tortured, hanged, and burned for being witches. They arrived in America looking for a fresh start and brought that fear of witches with them.

That fear and dread became hysteria when evil came to Salem Village, fueling hostility, distrust, and religious fanaticism that claimed the lives of innocent people on the gallows. But Salem was not the end of America’s obsession with witchcraft. In this episode, we look into the hidden history of the American witch and how it continues today.
