Biography: 

This "gaunt and tattered, battle-grimed and fleeing and undefeated" lieutenant is leading the Confederate cavalrymen fighting a rear-guard action against the Union troops attacking Jefferson when Cecilia Farmer first sees him (182); after the War they marry, and he takes her to live on the "small hill farm" he inherits from his father in Alabama (185). The description of the farm is the basis for identifying him as 'Lower' class, despite the fact that he is an officer.
