Suckage

Well my friends, today, May 27th, in the year of 1647 -- the very first RECORDED American execution of a "witch" took place in Massachusetts. Of course, these "witches' -- or "wise-ones" were simple midwives & healers, using nothing more than herbs that they found in the forest or in the bogs....depending on the location.

So, one day --literally--a midwife could deliver a baby, and the next be accused of being a 'devil worshiping witch'. Those poor women -- and even the men -- weren't spared.
