Description: 

Although Mississippi was in the western theater of the Civil War, John Sartoris and the regiment he raises from Yoknapatawpha travel to Virginia to do their fighting there; after he returns home, bringing the "captured musket" that hangs above the mantle at Sartoris (9), the regiment remains in the Civil War's eastern theater. In addition the novel notes that Uncle Buddy is "a sergeant in Tennant's brigade in Virginia" (51).
