Description: 

Nat spends the three weeks between her father and her husband's arrests in "Jackson" (220), presumably as part of Lucas' plan to avoid being convicted. There is a Jackson, Tennessee, that appears in Light in August, but it is more likely that Nat went to Jackson, Mississippi, the state capital that would be about 160 miles from Yoknapatawpha. (When Faulkner revised this story as part of Go Down, Moses he changed Jackson to Vicksburg, 68.)
