Description: 

Lee Goodwin tells Horace that in the past he had been a cavalry sergeant "on the Border" (109). There's no reason to doubt that the border in this case is between the U.S. and Mexico. In response to the Mexican Revolution, the Army fortified a number of positions along the border, and beginning in 1914 there was open military conflict between the two sides. Battles and skirmishes were fought at points along the entire border, so our icon may be hundreds of miles east or west from where Faulkner imagined Goodwin served.
