Description: 

Little description is given in this story of the Sartoris plantation main house itself. It seems to be a typical plantation “big house”: a two-story structure with stairs in a central hallway, with rooms on either side of the hall. Bedrooms occupy the second floor, while downstairs rooms include a dining room and another room (probably a parlor) with a fireplace, hearth, and a musket on pegs above the mantel. The mansion also has both a front porch and a back porch. In the next story in the series, “Retreat,” the main house will be burned by Union soldiers, so the house in this story is not the same one that appears in later stories in this series or in Flags in the Dust.
