Episode 1: They Made a Tonic

On the morning of March 17, 1892, a group of townsfolk in rural Rhode Island dug up the graves of three local women. What they did to their bodies was something that we might find shocking, yet it was normal and expected for most of them. What was it in their past that guided their actions? Were they merely a product of their ancestors, or innocent participants in a regional panic?
