"Uncle Buck McCaslin" is mentioned again in the next story in the Unvanquished series, "Raid," but only when Bayard compares the actions of the Sartoris family slave, Louvinia, to how he acted "the morning we started to Memphis" in the previous story, "Retreat." The indirect way this reference brings a white man and an enslaved black woman together could be read as portentous in the context of the ultimate story Faulkner tells about the McCaslin family, but it still seems obvious that Faulkner's imagination has not been engaged by "McCaslins."
