Famous Last Words

“I am no more a witch than you are a wizard, and if you take away my life, God will give you blood to drink.”

Good was one of the 20 people executed during the Salem Witchcraft Trials. Of the 20 lives claimed, 19 (including Good) were killed by hanging and one by being crushed to death under rocks. Another five (including two infants) died in prison.
