Chapter 22 Summary

Jem cries about the injustice he witnessed that day with the guilty verdict. The black people of Maycomb bring many dishes of food to the Finch household. Jem's illusions about the people of Maycomb were shattered by their verdict. He once believed they were good and honorable people, but if they were then the jury would have found Tom innocent.

Miss Maudie tries to help the children. She mentions that some of the people tried to help. The judge did what he could to guarantee a fair trial by assigning Atticus to defend Tom. She reminds them that the jury took their time reaching a verdict and that means the townspeople are working on their problems. Just before the children leave, Miss Stephanie tells them Ewell spit on Atticus earlier in the day and swore to get revenge for what he feels Atticus did to him.
