Description: 

The gate to the Sartoris plantation is near a bend of the “big road” that leads south into Jefferson and north in the direction of Corinth. In this story, honeysuckle grows near the gate, providing Bayard and Ringo some cover as they lay in ambush for the approaching Yankee soldier on horseback. The gate opens into a drive that leads to the main house that seems to parallel (or possibly run through) the plantation’s orchard.
