Tom Robinson convicted of rape
Mayella claims she knew for sure it was him. But nobody knows for sure, because there is little evidence to show for the case. The father of Mayella Ewell, Bob Ewell, says "I saw that nigger rutting on my Mayella when I come in." But a doctor was not called to see what happened. Some are thinking that that the Ewell's are trying to cover up evidence. But nobody knows for sure. Some of the white community are afraid that their children will be abducted by colored people. And while others are worrying about the colored community, some are more interested in the case. Tom Robinson, on the other hand says that Mayella jumped on him. The jury was very shocked when they heard this. The jury found Tom Robinson guilty as charged. Tom Robinson is now being sent to the state prison for life.

The Great Depression
Almost 13 to 15 million Americans lost their jobs when the stock market crashed. Now citizens are fighting to keep their life together. But some of the wealthy people are not affected by this tragedy, and some are ignorant to the needs of others. Many wives are being held accountable for all the work meaning that most men have lost their jobs. Many have stopped looking for work and are waiting for a miracle. Soup kitchens and homeless shelters are becoming more popular since many have little money to spend. Many families are struggling to feed their children. Others are waiting for job opportunities to start a new life without poverty. While most citizens are struggling with poverty, the wealthy aren't effected as much. Some wealthy citizens are fundraising for the poor, and others would rather keep their money to themselves. American citizens are anxious to see what becomes of the country in the next few years.
