A manipulative woman and a roguish man conduct a turbulent romance during the American Civil War and Reconstruction periods.
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! ...
Rhett tells Scarlet that the war might be settled soon in a little town in Pennsylvania called Gettysburg.
Gettysburg was an accidental engagement that let to a much bigger battle, but neither army was aiming for an engagement there.
The battle did last three days, but given the South's lack of communication with Lee's Army, there is little chance anyone in Georgia, much less a civilian, would know what happened until well after.
George Reeves is credited as playing the part of Brent Tarleton, and Fred Crane is billed as Stuart Tarleton. This is incorrect: Crane played Brent, and Reeves played Stuart.
