Salem Witch Trials: Martha Corey is executed for witchcraft. Like many others, Martha is a very pious Christian and the accusations against her surprised many — but she's also been an outspoken opponent of the witch trials.

She doesn't believe that witches exist and says that the accusers are lying. Executing her silences one of the few vocal critics of the trials.
