Description: 

The orchard at the Sartoris plantation (in a later story revealed to be an apple orchard) serves both practical and aesthetic purposes. As a practical matter, the orchard provides food as well as a place to bury the family silver to hide it from Union soldiers. The orchard also provides a natural aesthetic enhancement to the plantation; like a formal garden, the orchard helps to elevate the cultural status of the plantation’s owners. Judging from the movements of Bayard and Ringo in this story, the Sartoris plantation orchard appears to be between the main house and the driveway gate on the “big road” that passes the place.
