Description: 

General Forrest asks if he can "reach the Holly Branch road" from the Sartoris place "without having to go through Jefferson" (693). "Holly Branch" is probably Faulkner's fictional name for the real town northeast of Jefferson called Holly Springs, site of a real Confederate raid in 1862 on a Union supply depot. That makes this road the one that (in other Yoknapatawpha texts) goes past the McCaslin and McCallum places. And in that case, the answer to Forrest's question is Yes.
