Description: 

Located in the town cemetery on a height overlooking the railroad he built, Colonel John Sartoris' "effigy and statue" wears a frock coat and an expression described as that "haughty arrogance which repeated itself generation after generation with a fateful fidelity" (399). There seems to be no question but that Faulkner based it on the statue of his great-grandfather, William C. Falkner, in the cemetery at Ripley, Mississippi.
