According to legend, the creation of the novel Gone with the Wind began with Margaret Mitchell writing the main phrase of the last chapter: "None of her favorite men Scarlett could not understand and behold - lost both." Subsequent work on the work lasted about ten years and required the writer great dedication and hard work. In an effort to break into the spirit of the era, Mitchell painstakingly studied the history of her native Atlanta, using newspapers and magazines of the mid-19th century. On the pages of her manuscript lived up to the stories of eyewitnesses of the Civil War and family traditions. Mitchell rewrote some scenes four or five times, and as for the first chapter, the writer was satisfied only with the 60th version!
