Description: 

The first time this mansion appears in Flags, the narrator calls it "the house that John Sartoris built and rebuilt" (8).  His first mansion was burned by Yankee soldiers during the Civil War; his post-war reconstruction of it, on an even grander scale, is described briefly in The Unvanquished. It has a "colonnaded veranda," extensive grounds, and features a window made up of "vari-colored" panes of glass that John's youngest sister, Virginia, "had brought from Carolina in a straw-filled hamper in '69" (10).
