Mr. Shiftlet continues on the road saying he has to get to, “Mobile” before nightfall only to hit a bump on the road tragically dying instantly. By this deviance he instantly got his karma. By the elements of mystery, southern pride, and deceivance, it made the plot thicken with an underlying personality of Mr. Shiftlet that he perceives to the outer world.

This was the fire the children of my village sat around and told stories before they went to sleep, and tonight was no different. All of their eyes stared at me expectantly as they waited for me to start telling them a story. “Two Rivers Running, tell us the Story of the Great Battle again,” the little ones asked. All eyes were on me as I sat down next to them, everyone silent as I told them the story of the Great Battle.

The obstacle race included activities like moving a marble down a trail with only pipes that could connect, finding a man on a moped covered in leaves and getting a selfie with him, and shooting some type of arrow at a wooden buffalo. This was a fun a great team building activity for the NHS participants.

In chapter 6, Jem, Dill, and Scout go over to the Radley house on Dill’s last night to try and see Boo Radley through a window. Instead, they see a shadowy figure in the yard and a gunshot goes off, scaring them and forcing them to run away from the property.

“ It will be celebrated… with pomp and parade… bonfires and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other,” once said the famous John Adams.
