Following are some items that were mentioned during the 17 January 2013 Fieldstone Common interview with Juliet Haines Mofford, author of The Devil Made Me Do It: Crime and Punishment in Early New England.
Juliet has published eleven books some of which include
- Cry “witch”: the Salem witch trials, 1692 (Discovery Enterprises, 1995)
- Greater Lawrence, a bibliography : an annotated guide to the history of Andover, Methuen, Lawrence, and North Andover (Merrimack Valley Textiles Museum, 1978)
- The history of North Parish Church of North Andover, 1645-1974: and firm thine ancient vow (Mofford, 1975).
She has also written a number of history books targeted toward juvenile readers.
One of the places that Juliet mentions during the interview is the Old Gaol in York, Maine. Juliet not only worked there previously but she also writes about it in the book. The Old Gaol is part of the The Old York Historical Society which has number of historical buildings which you can visit.
The Globe Pequot Press, the publisher of The Devil Made Me Do It: Crime and Punishment in Early New England, donated two copies of the book that were given as “door prizes” during the live show. One copy went to a listener in Colorado and the other to a listener in Massachusetts. A big thank you to the Globe Pequot Press for their generosity!
