Description: 

In Flags in the Dust, this site by the side of the road is where old Bayard Sartoris suffers a fatal heart attack. In The Mansion, by contrast, Faulkner is not entirely clear, but it seems that old Bayard is replaced with his father, Colonel John Sartoris, whose death in this accident leads to Manfred de Spain assuming the presidency of the Sartoris Bank.
