Biography's Source:

Born November 8, 1900 in Atlanta, Georgia. Margaret Mitchell was ten years old before she discovered the Confederates had lost the War. The daughter of a prominent lawyer and authority on the South, Miss Mitchell was brought up on stories of Southern heroism, told and retold by relatives whose stirring account of the War never included its outcome.

A former newspaper reporter, she began Gone with the Wind, her only novel, in 1926. Only two people – the author and her husband – saw the manuscript before it reached the publisher. It came out in 1936 and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize.
