Ironically, Abigail and none of the other girls who falsely accused many people of being witches, are in prison. Neither is Tituba, who probably started the entire witchcraft incident. Thomas Putnam, one of the greediest members of the Salem society, is still free, as is Reverend Parris, who was the first to see the girls dancing in the forest and did nothing to stop it. Obviously, members of the court, including Danforth and Hale are free. Unfortunately, Sarah Goode, Rebecca Nurse, John Proctor, Giles Corey and, according to historical records, 15 others are not in prison but dead because of witchcraft allegations.
