A Story for the Ages

A group of girls are found in the woods uttering incantations and casting spells, under the guidance of a servant named Tituba. Once found the girls are accused of witchcraft but they all deny the accusations and instead insist they were bewitched by other witches in town. They start accusing innocent people of the crime, all for various despicable reasons and under the influence of several people in power. That leads to witch trials where many people are hanged without any proof based solely on the word of mouth.
