The "carpet-bagger followers of victorious armies" (265) and their descendants, the men who did not fight in the Civil War but merely profited from it, are mentioned several times in Go Down, Moses, by the narrator and by McCaslin Edmonds. They are defined by “a single fierce will for rapine and pillage” (276).
