River Heights South of Jefferson (Location Key)

Code: 
1220
Description: 

This location in Requiem for a Nun is one of the few places in which the fighting between Union and Confederate forces in the Civil War comes to Yoknapatawpha. When Union forces attack Jefferson during the Civil War, the Confederates fall back "to a stronger line on the river heights south of the town" (182). There does not seem to be any fighting there, though the Yankees occupy and burn the town itself.
