Description: 

Founded in 1819, Memphis, Tennessee, had over 20,000 residents in the 1860s, making it the closest big city to Yoknapatawpha. It is about seventy-five miles northwest of Jefferson. This the place that Colonel Sartoris tells Rosa Millard to "retreat" to early in the novel. Later, it is referred to as the place where Ab Snopes goes to sell back to the Union Army the mules that Granny and Ringo steal from various Yankee encampments in Mississippi.
