In the mission "An Honest Mistake", Arthur Morgan, Charles Smith, Bill Williamson and Uncle hide in a shed part of Compson's Stead - a homestead built on Eris Field. They are found by Cornwall's men, resulting in a shootout during which the shed is set ablaze. The four robbers then escape into the nearby forest and eventually lose their pursuers.
As part of the stranger mission "The Iniquities of History", the player visits Compson's Stead to recover some items for Jeremiah Compson. Afterwards, they go to Compson's camp in Eris Field and burn his possessions in the fire following the discovery that he was a proud slave catcher. They can then kill or him, or leave him at the scene; either of which will increase the player's Honor.
