Our-Diary-Salem-Witch-Trials

"Our Diary" was a section on Dear America: The Official Web Site. It was one of the website's many interactive features meant to engage young readers. Visitors were encouraged to submit entries to an ongoing diary known as "Our Diary." New entries were posted weekly.

The Salem Witch Trials[]

"The Salem Witch Trials: The Diary of Rebecca Harris" was the first "Our Diary" and begun sometime in early 2002. It told the story of twelve-year-old Rebecca Harris living in Salem, Massachusetts during the infamous Salem witch trials.[1] A Dear America book, I Walk in Dread, based on the same event was later published in 2004.

Liberty's Witness[]

After the first "Our Diary" concluded, readers were encouraged to suggest time periods for the next one.[2] After some time, readers were given four stories to choose from. The choices were "Homestead Hopes: The Diary of Cora Clemens, an Oklahoma Cowgirl, 1853," "Liberty's Witness: The Diary of Eliza Hutchinson, Boston Tea Party, 1774," "Wings Around the World: The Diary of Geraldine Hopper: Early Flight Passenger, 1933," and "Winds of Change: The Diary of Minnie Greensboro, Civil Rights Movement, 1955."[3] "Liberty's Witness" won the vote and the first entry was posted in late 2003.[4] Unfortunately, the story was never finished.
