Description: 

After the Civil War Colonel John Sartoris, with a partner named Redlaw part of the time, builds a railroad that bisects Yoknapatawpha from north to south. Until the automobile age begins in the early 20th century, this is the main route by which Jefferson is connected to the larger world, a role it plays in many of the Yoknapatawpha fictions.
