What do you learn in this chapter about Maycomb, Atticus Finch and his family?
We learn that Maycomb is a mall Southern town in Alabama. There are few secrets in this old small town, "Maycomb was an old town, but it was a tired old town when I first knew it". The town is segregated by both color and, to an extent, socio-economic class. The people with more money live in the town. The poorer people live on farms in the country.
