  • Chapter 19
  • Tom Robinson Testifying
  • Dill Runs Out Crying
  • Tom Robinson rises from his chair after being called up to testify. It is then revealed that his left hand has been damaged. This would make it impossible for him to have strangled Mayella.
  • Tom Robinson was first questioned by Atticus, which then follows up with being questioned by Mr. Gilmer. Tom says that he feels sorry for Mayella, causing a small murmur within the crowd.
  • Dill starts crying so Scout accompanies him outside of the courthouse. He then states that it is not fair how Mr. Gilmer is talking and treating Tom.
