Description: 

Memphis, the closest city to Yoknapatawpha, is about seventy-five miles northwest of Jefferson. Although she never gets there, Rosa is supposed to be "retreat"ing to Memphis. As she tells the Confederate officer who stops them on the road, her sister lives there, and her son-in-law, Colonel Sartoris, has told her to go there, presumably for safety.
