In the finale of the sequel "Rhett Butler's People" (2007), Tara is burned to the ground.
What do we care if we *were* expelled from college, Scarlett? The war is gonna start any day now, so we'd have left college anyhow.
Stuart Tarleton: War! Isn't it exciting, Scarlett? You know those fool Yankees actually *want* a war?
Brent Tarleton: We'll show 'em!
Scarlett: Fiddle-dee-dee! ...
News is brought to Tara that the war is over because Lee surrendered. Lee's surrender of the Army of Northern Virgina on 9 April 1865 had no effect on Georgia. That state's troops were in the army of General Joseph Johnston which continued battling Sherman in the Carolinas for a few weeks after Lee. The surrender of General Kirby Smith at Galveston, Texas, on May 26 is considered the true end of the Civil War.
