Description: 

When Mink claims he has been "over a year in a hospital up in Memphis," the black man for whom he is picking cotton asks if he means "the Govment Vetruns Hospital" (439). There were several medical facilities for veterans in Memphis by the 1940s, so our representation of it on the map is more arbitrary than usual.
