Description: 

"That day we was in Calhoun county" (230) - this is how Old Man Falls begins telling Old Bayard about how Colonel John Sartoris single-handedly captured a company of Yankee cavalry. The Colonel's troop was moving north, after serving with Confederate General Van Dorn to keep an eye on U. S. Grant's forces in Grenada. Both Calhoun and Grenada are real places, though there no major Civil War battles took place in either of them.
