We all have rolled our eyes at the many fabrications in Gone With The Wind. (I will admit to watching it at least a half a dozen times though!) Although many inaccuracies can be found in both movies and books, we can see that as an opportunity to search the details out on our own.


Fuller you are correct.  With that said   "Gone With the Wind" actually has  some historical facts to it.

Margarett Mitchell  used Mary A. H. Gay's  "Life in Dixie During the War" as a source for GWTW.

"Life in Dixie During the War"  is one of the few eyewitness accounts of the war written by a women. And a wonderfuil read and Ihighly recomend it.
