Ever Present in Yoknapatawpha?: 

As they wait for Linda Kohl to return from the Spanish Civil War in The Mansion, Chick Mallison reminds his uncle about the "men soldiers" from Yoknapatawpha who have "come home wounded from a war" (121). The way he says it - "Men soldiers yes, of course yes" - suggests he is thinking mainly of Confederate soldiers and the Civil War, but the fictions include wounded veterans of the Spanish-American and the First World Wars.
