Summary: 

Mrs. Habersham and Louisa fix the date for Drusilla and John's wedding on the same day as the election, "the day after tomorrow" (69). But Bayard believes they weren't even aware of the coming vote, or the black voters who have already been gathered at the cotton gin "on the edge of town," or the white men who plan to assemble in Jefferson "with pistols in their pockets" (69).
