The Maycomb Tribune newspaper office, owned and operated by Mr. B. B. Underwood, is located downtown on the northwest corner of the Maycomb town square next to the jail, which was situated between the Tribune office and Tyndal's Hardware Store. Braxton Bragg Underwood (named after a Confederate Civil War general) lived on the second floor of the newspaper office, where he had a good view of newsworthy events around him. Underwood, with his double-barreled shotgun at his side, also had a clear shot at the Old Sarum men who had come to take Tom Robinson from the jail in Chapter 15.
