Executions: Salem Witch Trials

Salem Witch Trials

Using a Reingold - Tilford Tree, we can see the distribution of executions for witchcraft.  We can also see the breakdown by type of execution and sex of the executed individual.  Those executed during the Salem Witch Trials starting in 1692 are highlighted below.  For the actual court records, see the Salem Witchcraft Papers.

This data visualization was built using data from the Death Penalty Information Center, the Salem Witchcraft Papers with the RAW tool from the fine folks at Density Design.
