He is a lawyer and was once known as "the deadliest shot in Maycomb County". Although he was a good shot, he does not like to mention the fact as he does not like the thought of having an advantage over people. He appears to support racial equality and was appointed to represent Tom Robinson, a black man who has been accused of raping a young white woman, Mayella Ewell.
These men don't intend to hurt Tom themselves, but give Atticus an ominous warning that he could lose everything because of this case. Atticus doesn't think so and turns his back on the other men with complete confidence, though Jem and Scout, watching from inside the house, are terrified.
Jem's lie about the phone ringing breaks the tension outside and causes the group to scatter. Atticus explains somewhat erroneously that the KKK is gone and is never coming back, then tells the kids not to worry, because those men were still their friends and neighbors.
The next day, Sunday, these men approach Walter cunningham diary again outside church, but Scout and Jem don't hear what they say. After church, the kids bum around, bored out of their minds, and then settle in for a lazy evening when to their surprise Atticus announces that he's going out and takes an extension cord with him.
Curious, the Finch children fetch Dill, who's still staying at Miss Rachel's, and follow Atticus into town. They find him sitting outside the jailhouse, reading the newspaper.
Soon after the children find Atticus, a mob approaches him, intending no doubt to lynch Tom.
To Scout's dismay, these men are strangers hailing from Old Sarum, and though they're related to the Cunninghams, they have no reason to refrain from hurting Atticus. Scout jumping in between the mob and Atticus shames them enough for them to stop, particularly after Scout kicks one of them in the groin and calls out Mr.
Cunningham Walter's father for having legal troubles; because of this, the men shuffle off, leaving Atticus and the kids alone. Before they go home, Tom calls down to thank Atticus for protecting him.
Underwood reveals that he has been watching all along, holding his loaded shotgun at the ready in case there was any real trouble and he needed to defend Atticus. An architectural style popular in the late medieval period and characterized by the use of pointed arches, ribbed vaults, and flying buttresses, which were built in a comically small scale inside the jailhouse, which consists of only two cells.
The Gothic style is meant to make it seem foreboding and sinister, but its size turns it into a joke. Grady - A journalist who helped reintegrate the Confederacy into the Union following the Civil War.
His stance as a white supremacist complicates Atticus's seeming admiration for him, making the fact that he forces Jem to read Grady's work very questionable.
A hate group often referred to as the KKK or, simply, the Klan. It was first founded in the s, around the time of the Civil War, but didn't gain momentum until the early s, when they first began burning crosses and organizing mass parades to assert their white supremacist beliefs.
The traditional image of a Klan member is that of a man draped in a white sheet with a pointed hat on top. Atticus erroneously says that the Klan is dead, but in fact it still exists today, and the kids are right to be afraid that the Klan will intervene in Tom's trial even though they don't, in the end.
Up until the moment Scout jumps into the circle of men, all the fear in this chapter belongs to the children: Once Scout shows up, however, the fear shifts to Atticus, who worries that both she and Jem will get hurt if this turns into a fight.
In this, we see that Atticus's only vulnerability is his children and that he has been trying to keep them safe by keeping them away from the trial and any discussion of it. Unfortunately, he won't be able to protect them from everything.

However, given the racially charged subject matter of the novel, Lee avoids associating black with evil and instead focuses on how light is associated with goodness, education, and enlightenment.
When Atticus sits alone in the light of that one bulb, he appears to be an oasis of morality and rationality. In this chapter, Scout misinterprets Atticus's lessons in manners to humorous effect, dropping the subject of Walter Cunningham because Atticus told her it was impolite to make people talk about things only you're interested in talking about.
