In Sixteen Hundred and Ninety-Two

On this side of the Atlantic, the year 1692 saw the beginning of the Salem witch trials.

On the other side of the Atlantic, on this day of that same year, the Massacre of Glencoe occurred.

Remember that the next time you hear someone talk about the so-called Glorious Revolution.
