During the Civil War, "John Sartoris himself" led a "small gang of irregular cavalry" to Tennessee, where they fought with Nathan Bedford Forrest's troops (181). Chattanooga, Tennessee, where several battles took place in 1862 and 1863, is mentioned in the context of the "constricting loop" which the Union forces are drawing around the remaining Confederates during the last months of the war (184). The Battle of Shiloh, mentioned briefly in the narrative in the context of World War II, was fought in April, 1862 (194).
