Description: 

Very little is known about this plantation, the place where Colonel John Sartoris and his sister Jenny were born, not even which Carolina it was in. But according to Jenny, who lived there through the end of the Civil War, it was built by her "great-great-great-grandfather," and burned down by "drunken Yankee generals" (50). The colored window panes in the Yoknapatawpha Sartorises' mansion were salvaged from this original family home and brought to Mississippi by Jenny in 1869.
