Description: 

The church that seems to have been built for the big plantations that lie in the northern half of Yoknapatawpha and where the Sartoris family has a pew and there is a gallery large enough for 200 negroes. In "The Unvanquished" Bayard contrasts the description of its occupants in the pews--"the old men and the women and the children and the maybe a dozen niggers that didn't have any white people now" (83)--with his memory of it before the war: "I could remember back when father would be in the pew with us and the grove outside would be full of carriages from the other plantations, and Doctor Worsham in his stole beneath the altar, and for each white person in the auditorium there would be ten niggers in the gallery" (84). Bayard describes its location in relation to the mule pen: "not toward the cabin but across the pasture toward the road" (91).
