Southern Uniforms

The plot of Gone with the Wind twists and turns in a way that keeps readers interested. The characters are unpredictable. For example, Scarlett loves Rhett yet she marries another man. Rhett loves Scarlett yet he leaves her in the end. They have a child, whom they love, but the child dies in a freak accident, causing a rift between them that eventually leads to divorce. The many changes that Mitchell introduced into the life of Scarlett contributed to the novel’s reader appeal. There are numerous uniforms in the novel because of the Civil War, but no character ever wears a tuxedo.
