Description: 

The Compson family, like much of the white population of Yoknapatawpha, is originally from Scotland. The story mentions three different places in that country, all of them real: Glasgow is the home of the printer who was Quentin MacLachan's father; Perth is city in central Scotland where Quentin's mother's family lived and where he was brought up after death of both parents; and "Culloden Moor" is where the Jacobites (including Quentin) were decisively defeated in a battle with Great Britain in 1746.
