No Pardons For Witches
New England wine moms look to clear the names of demonic ladies from four-hundred years ago.
Things are so good for wine-moms in yoga pants that they’re giving their lives meaning by appropriating the suffering witches.
It’s really happening.
The Range Roverettes in Connecticut are very excited about the history of witch trials and executions that occurred in that state and will giddily inform you that it happened way before Salem, Massachusetts got around to it.
As NBC CT reported:
Decades before the infamous Salem witch trials began, there were witch trials and executions here in Connecticut. In fact, the first witch-hanging in all the English colonies happened in 1647 when Alice Young was hanged in Hartford.
Now, there is a movement to have her, and those who were convicted, exonerated by the state.
The first hanging was 32-year-old Young, of Hartford. She was the inspiration for the book “One of Windsor.” Author Beth Caruso is now helping lead a movement to have Young and others exonerated.
“If you walked into someone’s barn and their cider went sour, they accused you of being a witch,” said Rosemary Lang, the ninth generation great granddaughter of Mary Barnes(an executed witch).
