Description: 

The seaport of Charleston, South Carolina, was an important Confederate site during the Civil War. From 1862-1863, Ike McCaslin's business partner worked there building blockade-runners - ships designed to elude the Union naval blockade in order to bring needed materials from abroad into the Confederacy. The first McCaslin in Yoknapatawpha - Lucius Quintus Carothers McCaslin - originally came "from Carolina" too (295), but text doesn't say where.
