PORTLAND, Maine – Reverend George Burroughs was seated at his dinner table in Wells when lawyers dragged him on the night of May 4, 1692.

Acting on the authority of a court in Salem, Massachusetts, MPs bound Burroughs and began transporting him south. They did not give her time to pack or make arrangements for her family.

Along the way, somewhere below Wells, a terrible storm occurred. Lightning split the sky. Thunder erupted in torrential rain. The sudden, angry weather frightened the lawyers and their horses.
