Description: 

There is a real Mount Vernon in northeast Mississippi. Measured from Oxford, the original of Jefferson, it is eighteen miles to the southeast. In Flags in the Dust (1929) Mount Vernon is referred to as a "hamlet" since miles away from the MacCallum place. In this novel it is mentioned in connection with the alternate and much longer route (taking two days on horseback) that the character simply referred to as "MacCallum" takes to reach Jefferson when all the bridges are out.
