Biography: 

The troop of Confederate cavalry under the command of General Van Dorn to which Hightower's grandfather belonged that rode into Jefferson and destroyed a Union supply depot, after which most of them rode away. This event that Hightower is obsessed with is adapted by Faulkner from an actual raid that occurred in 1862 in Holly Springs, a Mississippi town near Oxford/Jefferson. We have entered these soldiers in the database simply as "unnamed characters," but they could have been identified as "historical" figures, or, given the way they continue to ride as phantoms of Hightower's imagination, "characters created by another character in the text.
