Hi,
In the following sentence I cannot understand the meaning of "chapter." I looked it up in the dictionary but most of the meanings is fit for this case and it made me confused. Could you tell me which meaning is used here?


“The manifesto they signed bore just fifty-four names, and their foray into electoral politics that autumn was barely noticed, but within a couple of years the Fascist movement had more than two thousand chapters, and Benito Mussolini was their leader.”
