Description: 

According to the novel, in 1820 Columbia was the temporary location of the Mississippi legislature when the Commission to choose the site of a capital for the new State was authorized (84). Although the novel does not say so, Columbia was named for Columbia, South Carolina, from which many of its early settlers, like many of the inhabitants of Yoknapatawpha, had migrated.
