Salem Candle by D.L. & Co. ~ Created in remembrance of the Salem Witch Trials: "New England maple, hickory and walnut are set ablaze in a ravenous bonfire consuming the imagination" In colonial Massachusetts, between February 1692 and May 1693, over 150 people were arrested and imprisoned based on accusations of Heresy and Witchcraft. The two courts convicted twenty-nine people of the capital felony of witchcraft. Nineteen of the accused, fourteen women and five men, were executed.
