History of Magicians and Magic in America

Before JK Rowling wrote about America's wizards and witches, Americans had their own traditions: myths about witch judgment, the effects of magic in people, and the 'struggle' between white and black magic.

As in many other cultures, the belief in the existence of witches and magicians in North America dates back to long and for the first time on the continent is introduced by Dine culture, or Navaho people.

 However, it is difficult to find information about the origin of magic, as these people prefer not to communicate with 'strangers' about their culture.

However, it is well known for the colonial concepts of magic, for the simple fact that has led to many drama and death.

Before the Judgment of Salem's Magicians in 1658, Elizabeth "Goody" Garlick lived, accused by a sixteen-year-old mother, shortly before her baby died.

 However Garlick had escaped thanks to the fact that the then governor believed that the tendency to believe in magic had turned into a kind of pathology, so he had not condemned what was accused of magic.

 Salem of Massachusetts, as has been known, was not so fond of magic practitioners in 1962 and 1963. There were many reasons for believing that magic was being practiced since three children were beginning to experience strange attacks within one short period of time. The slave of one of the sick girls, Sarah Good, a homeless beggar, and Sarah Osborne, a woman with the reputation of breaking social norms, were accused of magic.

Although the latter had denied accusations of magic, Tituba had begun to produce strange accounts, which, of course, had not passed without the attention of local judge John Hathorne, who had come to the conclusion that she was guilty.
