The famous witch trials Salem Witch Trials were held in 17th century Colonial America. According to the readings of Edgar Cayce, the most prolific psychic of the 20th century who gave in excess of 14,500 reading, some of the accused as well as the accusers returned in the 20th century.
In two cases they were children too young to realize what a witch was, but their past lives in Salem were revealed in readings requested by the parents. Hopefully the children benefited from the information revealed in the life readings.
The witchcraft hysteria commenced on March 1, 1692, and resulted in trials based on so-called evidence which was nothing more than superstitious beliefs, hear-say and ignorance. This was a time when fear and intolerance alone was sufficient to legally satisfy the burden of proof.
The trials spanned seven months culminating in the death of 20 people with the last of the executions occurring on September 22nd, 1692. Twenty men and women were hung and one man who refused to render a plea was crushed to death. Many more were imprisoned well into 1693. Those imprisoned were released although at least 4 people including 2 babies died in captivity.
If reincarnation is indeed a fact, then considering the times and horror inflicted upon the victims in Salem, it seems only logical to believe that a soul who was involved in the madness would bear the imprint in future lifetimes. This fact will become apparent as we review the psychic readings given by Edgar Cayce that retraced a surprisingly large number of past lives that occurred during that time in history.
