With distant family members looking on, Connecticut senators voted Thursday, May 25, 2023, to absolve the 12 women and men convicted of witchcraft -- 11 of whom were executed — more than 370 years ago and apologize for the “miscarriage of justice” that occurred over a dark 15-year-period of the state's colonial history.
