Description: 

Kentucky is mentioned often in Quentin's section, as the place where Gerald Bland and his mother are from. Jason refers to the Kentucky city of Louisville during a rant against the attitude of Yankees about African Americans: "Get [black people] ahead, what I say. Get them so far ahead you cant find one south of Louisville with a blood hound" (231). Louisville is on the Ohio River, which like the Mason-Dixon line was a boundary between the "free" North and the "slave" South.
