On June 10, 1692 Bridget Bishop was hanged on Gallows Hill. Six days later, Dr. Roger Toothaker also died. Roger hadn’t even had his trial yet. He didn’t survive Boston jail. At the end of June, the Court of Oyer and Terminer got back to work.

Co-Host, Behind the Scenes Magician
Adrienne has been obsessed with history since about age 10, starting the day she watched the 1982 film “The Scarlet Pimpernel.” She has a B.A. in history and a M.A. in history and education. If she could choose to live anywhere in the world, Adrienne would 100% choose London, England even though she’s not really a city person. Adrienne loves to travel, eat chocolate, and binge Netflix whenever she can.

Renee has loved history ever since Adrienne gave her her first lesson all those years ago. Since then, she’s found her writing style, giving a voice to the people and places of times long gone. She has a B.A. in English Literature and Creative Writing and an MFA in Fiction. Unlike her sister, Renee’s favorite city is Edinburgh, Scotland. In her spare time, she reads, writes, obsesses over her favorite authors, and cuddles her puppies while catching up on shows she’s fallen behind in.
