Description: 

Though only alluded to in this story as "a plantation at Mississippi, where they grew grain and Negroes, or the Negroes grew the grain - something" (513-14), Johnny Sartoris' home appears in the letters that the narrator reads in July 1918. From them we can tell that Sartoris is from an upper-class Southern family with at least one unreconstructed Confederate in it - his great-aunt Jenny, who writes that the Great War is the Yankees' "war . . . not ours" (531).
