The major cities of the United States are all very interesting, after I analyzed my decision; I decided to research the great city of Boston, Massachusetts. Boston was founded on September 17, 1630 and has a rich historical background making it a very important city in the United States. “The city of Boston was the home to several important events during the American Revolution such as: the Boston Massacre, Boston Tea Party, the Siege of Boston, Battle of Lexington and Concord, and the Battle of Bunker Hill.” (Snow, Caleb H. (1828). History of Boston. Abel Bowen.) These were all significant events that helped shape the city Boston has become today.

Arthur Miller’s play, The Crucible, set in 1692, is based on the historical events surrounding the witch trials in Salem. This essay deals with the failure of the justice system in Salem, Massachusetts. Justice is meant to be based on the inherent principle that everybody is innocent until proven guilty and those found guilty having to be made to pay for their crimes. Arthur Miller demonstrates with his play that there is a thin line between justice and injustice, which can easily lead to hatred, greed, fear, envy and personal vengeance.
