“Tomorrow Is Another Day”

Margaret Mitchell began writing “Gone With The Wind” in 1926.  She began by writing the book’s final moments first and then worked backwards.  After fact checking and editing the historical novel was published on June 30, 1936.  “Gone With The Wind” takes place in the southern United States during the Civil War and Reconstruction Era.  The main characters Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler were shaped by the events of the war and need to survive.

Many Americans believe “Gone With The Wind” to be an example of a true legacy of the Civil War and the Reconstruction Period.  Mitchell fictionalized the war so that future Americans could appreciate our country’s history.  The book is on the list of works that have contributed to shape American’s lives.
