A little known thing

A bit of history.

1697 - The Massachusetts general court expresses official repentance regarding the actions of its judges during the witch hysteria of 1692. Jurors sign a statement of regret and compensation is offered to families of those wrongly accused.

I never knew apologies were given for the Salem Witch Trials. I don't remember that from any history book.
