When denied the opportunity to join John Sartoris' regiment, Buck and Buddy McCaslin threatened to have the "solid bloc of private soldier white trash vote" loyal to them vote to demote him (49); the threat led to a compromise of letting one McCaslin twin join the regiment, which was decided by a game of poker.
