BC: Braxton Bragg Underwood
FC: Mr. Braxton Bragg Underwood's Scrapbook | By: Katie Brown & Sydney Watkins
1: Mr. Underwood here! I am the editor, writer, and printer for the Maycomb Tribune.
2: I live in the prejudice county of Maycomb, Alabama. I love my job in the Newspaper busisness.
3: An important person in my Life is Atticus Finch. Atticus is my close ally and I protected him from Old Sarum mob. Atticus is the lawyer for Tom robinson's case and it has been very controversial since Robinson is a Negro. I respect Atticus finch. I believe who is doing the right thing.
4: Tom Robinson is another important person in my life. I also protected him from the Old Sarum Mob when they wanted to take him from the jail to lynch him. Even though he is a negro, and i am racist, I believe he deserves a fair trial. Tom is a hard working, honest, man.
5: The old Sarum mob is nothing but trouble for Atticus and Tom. I stood right next to Atticus with my shotgun ready to shoot anyone who got in my way. No one was going to lynch Tom under my watch. It is unfair to him getting killed for something he did not commit or do.
6: Tom Robinson was killed through all the pain and suffering of the trial. His verdict was guilty and while he was locked up, Robinson tried to escape but was shot while doing it. He would've made it if he wasn't crippled.
7: I have finally realized that racism is wrong. It is a sin, and killing cripples is not any better ESPECIALLY if he or she is innocent.
8: I have Changed my ways on how i feel about negroes. Racist attidudes are more complicated than simple.
9: I wrote an editorial on Toms death. I compared it to "the senseless slaughter of songbirds by hunters and children"(Lee30). Tom Robinson didn't deserve to go down like that.
