Description: 

The desolate hideout of Grumby and his Independents is "located on the Tallahatchie River, sixty miles away" from the Sartoris Plantation (94). Bayard describes the abandoned cotton compress as "the huge rotting building with the gray afternoon dying wetly upon it, and then at the end of the hall a faint crack of light beneath a door" (96). In order to get there, Granny walks from the crossroads where Ringo and Bayard wait in the wagon: "The crossroads was a not a road any more; it was no more than a faint gash turning off at right angles into the bottom, so that it looked like a cave" (95).
