To Kill A Mockingbird

By: Harper Lee

slide2
The story starts with the narrator telling the audience about her family.
  • The narrator is a young girl named “Jean Louise Finch” but every one calls her by her nick name “Scout”
slide3
Scout starts the story reminiscing about the time when her brother Jem broke his arm.

“When he was nearly thirteen, my brother Jem got his arm badly broken at the elbow”(3).

slide6
Jem thinks that it started the summer their friend Dill came to visit. When Dill had the idea of making Boo Radley come out
slide7
Scout argues back that if he wanted to go back that far, he may as well say it started over 100 years ago when President Jackson forced the Creek Indians to move, clearing up land for their ancestor Simon Finch to come to Alabama
slide8
They decide to settle the argument by taking to their father, Atticus Finch.
  • He says they are both right.
slide10
Simon Finch (their ancestor) leaves England because he is being religiously persecuted for being Methodist.
slide11
Simon came to Alabama and became a doctor. He made a lot of money doing this.
  • He bought three slaves, and some land and founded Finch’s Landing- a cotton plantation.
  • He married and

had many daughters.

slide12
Simon died when he was very old, and very rich.
  • It was tradition for the men of the family to stay on Finch’s Landing and make a living there growing cotton.
slide14
Scout’s father Atticus is the first to break this tradition. He leaves the Landing and goes to school to become a lawyer.
  • His younger brother, Jack, becomes a doctor.
  • His sister Alexandra stays and takes care of the land with her husband.
slide15
Once Atticus gets his law degree, he moves to Maycomb, Alabama (about 20 miles east of Finch’s Landing).
slide16
Atticus practices law in a small office in Maycomb, and he payed for

his brother Jack to go to

Medical School.

slide17
“He liked Maycomb, he was Maycomb County born and bred; he knew his people, they knew him, and because of Simon Finch’s industry, Atticus was related by blood or marriage to nearly every family in the town”(5).
slide18
And this is where our story begins…
