The two main characters are Mort and Gypsy Rosa. Morton is a Hitman but he thinks to himself more of a killer. The reader knows that Mort takes his Job seriously, “He wanted to be careful. Care was his by-word”, “He didn’t believe in drugs himself; not so much as a half of lager before the job”. This shows that Mort was a very serious man and that he is careful when he has an assignment to do.
Burnham on the other hand is using the fair as an opportunity as a means of proving he could do something great after being rejected from Harvard (376). Burnham was a great man and a hard worker is contrast to Holmes who was evil and used murders and scams to get what he wanted. The juxtaposition between the two characters definitely improved the structure of the novel and helped it become better organized. They definitely worked well together because the two events did overlap and were connected. I however, would have preferred reading solely about Holmes and his murders because I just wasn’t all that interested in the Burnham plot.

Atticus is a very skilled lawyer and this is proven when we points out that Bob Ewell is lying about Tom Robinson, without being rude and impolite. Atticus treats everyone with great manners and kindness be it Jem or Scout or the man he is fighting in court. Be it in his own home, or out on the streets of Maycomb, Atticus Finch has the same values and respect for people, be it his children or the African American members. Atticus doesn’t favour anyone; be it his children or even the Ewell family. As Atticus said, “I do my best to love everybody” (112) and because of this attitude, Atticus sees there to be no reason to why he should act any different around different people.
Dally can be mainly terrible and a bad person around no matter what situation it is, but deep inside he is the complete opposite and he will be most loyal to his friends. “Johnny was the gangs pet and Dally couldn’t hit him.” Dally proves he is tough, mean and bad by hitting everyone but he can’t hit Johnny so he treats him differently because he loves him and cares about him and he shows that by always giving him attention and helping him get out of trouble. If it weren’t for him Johnny would be in loads of trouble. Dally expresses his love to Johnny by treating him different than the rest and Dally caring about someone doesn’t match his status, but love in your friends and family can bring out the real you. Johnny is getting beat up at home.
Edie’s love and kindness towards Terry encouraged him to see life differently without death and violence. Charley’s brutal murder is the main catalyst for Terry’s transformation. Their brotherly bond was too strong and not one to be without consequences for Johnny Friendly and his mob. Terry’s attitude and behaviour at the beginning of the film was developed by Johnny Friendly and his ways of how a stable life on the docks should be, however, Terry’s realisation of Johnny’s wrong doing motivates him to follow what his conscience tells him. In the end it was not only Charley’s death but Father Barry and Edie’s moral persuasion that helped Terry find himself again, follow his own beliefs and destroy Johnny Friendly with the truth.
Overall the ending of The Red Badge of Courage was happy because the main character survived and was able to learn a valuable lesson. While reading the story it was quite sad because it showed how many people died for no reason. Fleming’s regiment was at one point to be sacrificed to help defeat the enemy. This was a realistic military strategy. Although only following the Flemings story, it did concentrate on death but it didn’t make it a sad story.
In a racist society like Maycomb, the verdict of this trial is a foregone conclusion the moment Mayella opened her mouth to scream rape, as the cowardly white jury of the court would never admit a black man’s testimony is true. Atticus is an intelligent man and recognizes this fact, yet he still decides to carry out his duties as appointed. He knew right from the start that there was nothing he can do to prevent Tom from getting convicted. Thus though all his effort will be in vain, he still works very hard to fight for Tom. In other words, he is very courageous as he ‘know(s) you are (he is) licked before you (he) begin (s) but you (he) begin(s) anyway’.
The accusation was less than truthful, but the men were later released. This was very rare for a case like this at the time, when racial tensions were high. With all of this happening, many people found wrong in the accusations and the goodness in human nature, the common and natural qualities and morals among humans, became prominent in people. In the book, the same qualities of good human nature are revealed in certain character's being assertive, steadfast, and diligent. In the beginning, Atticus is being assertive towards his sister, Alexandra.
