Notes: 

This event morphs into the next--a discussion by Mrs. Grier of the war losses endured by her family. She sounds Faulknerian in her intonations to "Weep" (108).

Summary: 

"Major" de Spain notes that, unlike his ancestors who fought for a dream in the Civil War, his son "died for an illusion" (108). Mrs. Grier takes the pistol from de Spain as part of her attempt to calm him.
