Description: 

Vicksburg, where the young mother's aunt lives, is a city on steep bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River. In 1940 there were about 25,000 people living there. It has a long history, but it is probably best known for the role it played as a strategically important Confederate stronghold during the Civil War until it surrendered to Ulysses S. Grant on July 4, 1863. It is frequently mentioned in Faulkner's fictions.
