Description: 

The once well-traveled road to the Old Frenchman place is "hardly a road" now; there remains "no trace" of the bridge that had crossed the creek decades earlier, when the place was a prosperous ante bellum plantation (373). The narrative calls the road an "old scar almost healed now," as nature reclaims the landscape (373), but there also seems to be some nostalgia in the way it recalls the people - slaves and body-servants, "women . . . in hooped crinoline" and "men in broadcloth" (373) - who had traveled up and down it during those days.
