Description: 

There were no Civil War battles fought in Yoknapatawpha, but like other southern towns during the war, Jefferson had an "improvised hospital" where the ladies of the community "cleaned and dressed" the wounded soldiers who were shipped there in the aftermath of battles (99). "Improvised" could mean a structure that was erected for this purpose, like a tent, or an empty building, a store or boarding house, that was used this way.
