We have court trials monthly, whether it's minor or major. But, without a witness how will the jury pick a side and decide if the accused is guilty or not guilty? As trails exist in non-fiction they exist in fiction. “To Kill a Mockingbird” trial and the Zimmerman trial have similarities and differences. But they also have the central idea of racism and judgement of the jury.

In this novel, each character has a specific role that teaches the reader a lesson on morals.
The book “To Kill a Mockingbird” written by Harper Lee and the article “Scottsboro Boys Trial” both contain controversial court cases. For “To Kill a Mockingbird” a black male named Tom Robinson was accused of raping a white woman named Mayella Ewell. In the “Scottsboro Boys Trial” nine young black men and teenagers are accused of raping two white females named Victoria Price and Ruby Bates. Both cases transpired in the 1930s in Alabama. This is bad for the accused as racism was at an all-time in the 1930s especially in the deep south. This was around the time when the Jim Crow Laws were still intact and black people were not still considered people and they would still lynch black people. If a black man was accused of any crime involving a white person the jury would take the white man's word over the black man’s word. These exact things
The Crucible was created in 1953, which shows the story of the Salem witch trials. This event occurred in Massachusetts Bay around the time1692-1693.

Parris’s daughter (Betty), ends up falling in a coma but we later found out that she was faking being in a coma because she was scared that she going to get in trouble. The Climax of this play is when the main character make one decision that changes the whole outcome off the play.

Although the evidence pulled by the the distraught citizens is strong, owners Max Blanck and Isaac Harris along with their lawyer Max Steuer have the right to defend themselves and give their side of the case. They claim that they locked the doors in order to keep the workers from stealing as said back in the History.com article when it states “There were two stairways down to the street, but one was locked from the outside to prevent stealing and the other only opened inward.” This quote plainly shows how the doors stopped the workers from exiting. Going along with that, some workers of the factory even said that the doors were actually unlocked and that there was no way to prove that the doors were locked. The article “Summation
On April 9th, 1974, a young woman at the age of 17 was found in a farmhouse in Blakesburg, Iowa. Her name was Mary Jayne Jones, and she had been sexually assaulted and shot in both her heart and head at close range with a high-powered rifle.

Many people who first see this book might read the title and ask what vindication is. Vindication is nothing more than defense or justification. In this book by James C. Curtis we see Andrew Jackson constantly looking for some kind of justification to his actions. Andrew Jackson was born on March 15, 1767 and named after his father who had passed away. His mother also left him and then later died while he was still fairly young. From the time he was young to the time he died, Andrew Jackson faced many hardships. After being confronted by death at a young age, he spent his life trying to prove to himself why he should still be alive. Even with all of the obstacles in his life, he went on to become one of America’s greatest army generals and presidents. All this can be tied into the author’s main point which is that we must set aside all of the great things that Andrew Jackson accomplished and look more into the setbacks he powered through to reach his goals.
