Description: 

In the economy of Yoknapatawpha, cotton gins were machines that separated the valuable fibers of the cotton plant from its seeds; a gin would have been housed in a simple structure. In this story, the "cotton gin on the edge of town" is where the freedmen gathered, "under guard," ahead of the election (69).
