Description: 

"The new pen" that Bayard and Ringo work on was made in the earlier story "Ambuscade," as a place to hide the Sartoris livestock from the Union troops who have become a presence in northern Mississippi. "Ambuscade" identifies its location as along the creek behind the plantation grounds, so we have located it there for this story.
