In this talk, State Historian and UConnTri-Campus Assistant Professor Walter Woodward outlines his new research on the Hartford Witch Hunt of the 1660s. It reveals how Connecticut Governor John Winthrop, Jr.-himself an alchemist and authority of magic-forcefully intervened to end Connecticut's rush to judgment on witch suspects, saving them from a sure trip to the gallows.
