Word Count: 1,197
There are several similarities and differences between the 1996 movie The Crucible and the truth about what happened in the Salem Witch Trials Even though there were differences between the movie The Crucible and the actual Salem Witch Trials the movie summarized the trials very well Ever since Increase Mather and thirteen or fourteen other pastors signed what was called the Cases of Conscience document the village of Salem was in major controversy The farms around there hadnt been farmed in months and the village wasnt looking good Some of the Puritans blamed this on the witches A Village PossessedIt was late one night when two girls by the names of Elizabeth Parris and Abigail Williams went out into the woods to a camp fire where they found a dozen other girls their age in a circle led by a person named Tituba The Crucible Every girl was acting a little strange but Elizabeth and Abigail were acting a little stranger Right when things got out of hand the girls were discovered by Rev Samuel Parris pastor of Salem Village and father of Elizabeth Parris All of the girls scattered and so did Tituba The true side of the story is that the two girls had made a homemade crystal ball and dropped the white of an egg over it trying to see if they had any visions Like a lot of the other girls in the village Abigail and Elizabeth were trying to see into the future to learn who their husbands would be and to see what their husbands would do for a living The girls went ahead and did this even though they knew that playing with the occult practice of fortune telling was forbidden The girls knew that tampering with the business of God could open the door to Satan Rice Jr It was just a coincidence that something went very wrong that dayThe two girls went to bed that night
