Summary: 

The wagon stops at a spring on the road to Memphis; while there, Ringo soaks the rose cutting roots in the water and Bayard adds some dirt he had brought from home in a snuff box, calling it "more than Sartoris earth: it was Vicksburg too: the yelling was in it, the embattled, the iron-worn, the supremely invincible" (55).
