This is a drawing of Cotton Mather.  Cotton Mather was born on February 12th, 1663 in Boston, Massachusetts.  Cotton Mather was a Puritan Minister who was, perhaps, best known for his participation in the Salem witch trials in the 1690’s.  Many of Cotton Mather’s writings led to the witchcraft hysteria and fueled the very superstitious people of the age to condemn many girls and women (and even a few men) to death.
