Description: 

Very little is known about this plantation, the place where Colonel John Sartoris and his sister Jenny were born, not even which Carolina it was in. But in this story Elnora says that during the Civil War "the Yankees" killed both Jenny's husband and her father in the fighting, then burned "the Cal-lina house" in which she was living with her mother (732). Presumably her mother died in 1869, which is the year Jenny came to live with her brother in Mississippi, bringing with her a set of colored window panes from the ruins of the family's Carolina mansion.
