Description: 

This pen is located in "the creek bottom beyond the pasture" (88) near the Sartoris Plantation and is built by Joby, Ringo, Bayard, and Ab Snopes to hide the mules confiscated from the Union army. When the Union soldiers arrive to recover the stolen mules, they tear down some of the fence around the pen and the lieutenant gives Granny a $10 voucher for the damaged property. After the soldiers leave, Granny orders Joby to "put those rails back up" (91).
