Witchcraft webinar offered by the Museum of Culpeper History

The Museum of Culpeper History will be offering a free webinar on the history of witchcraft in Colonial Virginia at 5 p.m. on October 19.

Williamsburg author / historian Carson Hudson will reveal how early America’s witches were not limited to the Salem witch trials. Grace Sherwood and other Virginians have been tried and punished for their unorthodox behavior and lifestyles.

Hudson is an Emmy Award-winning military and social historian, author and screenwriter. He has worked for the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, the National Park Service, the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation, the Mariners’ Museum / USS Monitor Center, and the National Museum of the Civil War Soldier. Today, he regularly lectures on a wide variety of topics, but his particular interests are civil war and colonial witchcraft.
