Uncle Buck McCaslin tells how the men in John Sartoris' first regiment elected him colonel and followed "him and Stonewall Jackson" to the edge of Washington, D.C. with minimal casualties, but then changed course "the next year," voting to demote him to replace him with Sutpen, "a damn feller that never even knowed which end of a gun done the shooting until John Sartoris showed him" (52).
