Cotton Mather and the Salem Witch Trials – Thomas Sullivan

Cotton Mather, and the Salem Witch Trials. His name has been dragged through the dirt for years due to the massive volumes of Charles W Upham, and others. So, I found a couple of titles that really helped to set the record straight. Including Enoch Pond, The Mather Family. For example, there is no proof Cotton Mather road in on a horse to cross-examine the testimony of the pastor George Burroughs who was about to be hanged and pleaded against him. Also a short biography of Cotton Mather and a look at his promotion of the smallpox vaccine.
