Description: 

Reverend and Mrs. Hightower travel to his new ministry in Jefferson by train. As he "watches the fleeing countryside" outside the "car window," he talks excitedly about his grandfather's Civil War raid on the town (482). The landscape is described as "similar to that where he was born" (482), though when the train nears Jefferson the train slows down to move through "the dingy purlieus" (485).
