8th-graders push to get wrongly convicted ‘witch’ pardoned

The Salem Witch Trials, we’ve learned about them, but every one of those accused of being a witch has had their name cleared, except for Elizabeth Johnson.

A group of 8th graders just finished their studies on the 1690’s and put together a project with everything it would take to clear Johnson’s name. That project is now being presented to the Massachusetts State Senate.

Records show even Johnson’s mother and sister were cleared of the charges but since Elizabeth was not killed or had any children there was no claim to clear her name.

The teacher for the middle school class says the project was important to show the kids how they can make a difference even if it to set the story straight.
