WHAT?!?!? YOU WANTED MORE? OKAY HERES AN Epilogue
A Long Boring Story Of A Trial The most common explanation for what happened at the Salem Witch Trials is that the girls suffering from these fits, were suffering from convulsive fungi in the Rye Bread. This fungi caused Ergot which was thought to be the cause. Ergot can be caused by a fungi in the rye bread. The symptoms of convulsive ergotism is very similar to the fits the accusers had, including the fits.
. It is almost proven that the young accusers would see an super natural effect of the person that afflicted them, and if these young women were suffering from convulsive ergotism, it has been argued that it was the likely culprit for these visions. Another, more popular theory is jealousy since most of the accused were rich, while their accusers were not and wanted to gain their property from the accused if convicted a witch.
The Long Tragic End Everyone Convicted died. Later the Salem residents said sorry to those who died.
