Margaret Mitchell's Gone with the Wind Revisited: The True Story of the Civil War in Georgia

Course Description

More than 30 million copies of Gone with the Wind have been sold worldwide and it was one of the most influential books of the twentieth century. The movie version in 1939 still remains one of the most successful films in box-office history. But does Mitchell's story live up to the expectations of a Civil War historian? We will discuss the wartime events depicted in the book, with a focus on Gen. William T. Sherman's capture of Atlanta and his March to the Sea (from Atlanta to Savannah) in 1864 and how it touched the people of Georgia, especially Mitchell's fictional characters of Scarlett O'Hara, Rhett Butler, and others.
