Biography: 

Henry is the second of Virginius MacCallum's six sons. He is "squat" and "slightly tubby," with "something domestic, womanish" about him (335). He spends "most of the time" inside: he superintends the kitchen, is "a better cook" than the black woman who is the family's official cook, and is locally famous for the quality of his homemade whiskey (335). Given his brothers' names - Lee, Jackson, Stuart and Raphael Semmes all pay homage to prominent Confederates - it's possible that Henry is named after Henry Clay, the antebellum Kentucky Senator.
