Description: 

As with the story where it first appears, "Ambuscade," there is little description given in "Retreat" of the Sartoris plantation main house. At the end of "Retreat" the main house is burned by Union soldiers, so the house in this story is not the same one that appears in Flags in the Dust. Other parts of the plantation mentioned in the text include Loosh's cabin as part of the slave quarters, the orchard, the barn, the swimming hole, the pasture, and a smoke house. Except for this last, which is where Bayard gets the dirt he is carrying to Memphis as a talisman, these sites have their own Location entries.
