Biography: 

Like the Sartorises, the McCaslins are planters who were among the first white settlers of Yoknapatawtpha; they are at the center of the later novel, Go Down, Moses. "Uncle" is a courtesy title for Buck. The scene Bayard recalls in this story, of him and Ringo speaking with Buck and an unnamed Confederate captain in town shortly before the Yankees burned it, appears in "Retreat."
