These times also had many differences. People in the Salem Witch Trials were in the 1600's-a very naive time- while people during the time of McCarthyism lived in the 1950's. Citizens of America in the 1600's were scared of one thing, the devil. The churches wanted to rid their town of anyone who associated with him by being hanged. In the 1950's, however, people were terrified of the red Communists coming to take over their beloved country.
“Good by mr wigin tell them im strong tell them im a man”(234). Jefferson was at the wrong place at the wrong time when two other black men tried to rob a white man’s liquor store. After the death of these men, instead of calling 911 he steals some money out the register and a bottle of wine off shelf. After Jefferson has been sentenced to death by execution, his godmother, Miss Emma, requests that Grant Wiggins teaches him to be a man before he dies instead of allowing him to die as a hog-which is what Jefferson’s defense attorney refers to him as. Although Grant initially doesn’t want to help Jefferson, he gradually changes throughout this book and accomplishes his goal of transforming him into a man.
In The Lottery, the younger generations of the town's population have begun to speak out against the annual stoning (Jackson). These youths cite the fact that many neighboring towns have already done away with the lottery, and they feel as though they too should dispense with the antiquated ritual.

Also in the story is an elderly male character who reprimands the youths for their idealism and departure from norms and traditions (Jackson). He is more comfortable and content to keep with the ritual of stoning an innocent town's person to death every year.
LA HONORS A TALE OF TWO CITIES WORKSHEET – SUMMERIZER Chapter 9-10 Basically in the beginning Jarvis is frustrated with Cruncher for the little secrets he had been keeping such as grave-robbing other than minding his work at the bank, but Cruncher begs to differ and believes that there are many people involved in the robbing. Carton tells Jerry and Cruncher that he plans to visit Darnay before his execution. So the letter that Manette apparently wrote explains the story of Manettes imprisonment.

Anyways Manette couldn’t save the life of the young pesant and was arrested because of Marquis Evermonde.

Prejudice was shown when Atticus was defending the jail, a group of men came to kill Tom and also when Scout was getting teased at school by other kids because her dad was taking Tom’s case. Furthermore, when Tom Robinson was accused of being guilty even though he was not, and died because of it.
It’s about a man from Samaria who saw a man beaten up and robbed lying on the side of the road. He went over to him and took care of him and paid for him to be looked after in a local inn. In society these days’ people aren’t encouraged to help one another as there are too many technicalities involved such as suing and liabilities. For instance if there was a car accident and someone stopped and tried to help them and the person in the accident died in the process the family could blame that person and sue them for causing the death even though they were only trying to be a good Samaritan. This makes people afraid and cautious to do the right thing and help others out as they are too worried about the safety of themselves, making them like the priest and Levi turning their backs to someone in need of help.
