What is scarlett o'hara's birthday?

April 23, 1841

Nope this can't be. Because she was only 16 when the war Started in 1861, so that would have to have her being born in the year 1845.

Also April 23 has got to be wrong, as well, because The barbeque at the Wilks' Plantation took place the day before Ft Sumter was fired upon, and that was on April 12, 1861...So that would have made Scarlett just shy of 16, but Ms Mitchell says she was already 16.

Note: The Barbeque at the Wilkes' Plantation did not take place the day before Ft. Sumter was fired on. In the meeting the men have, they specifically mention the firing on Ft. Sumter and Charles Hamilton mentions to Scarlett that Lincoln has called to arms the Union which occurred on April 15, 1861, three days after the firing on Ft. Sumter. Also, the news of Lincoln's call to arms would have taken days if not weeks to reach Georgia let alone the Wilkes plantation. Georgia succeeded on January 19, 1861.

Which university expelled the Tarleton twins in 'Gone With the Wind'?

The University of Georgia just had expelled the dashing Tarleton twin brothers, Stuart and Brent, in the beginning pages of 'Gone with the Wind'. It was the fourth university to have done so in two years. The other three were the University of Virginia, then the University of Alabama, and the University of South Carolina. Older brothers, Tom and Boyd Tarleton, had the exact same record, but by choice. They both refused to stay where they felt their irrepressible younger brothers to be unwelcome.

It was the beginning of a downward spiral for the wealthy, landowning family. Neither one of the charming brothers succeeded in wrenching Scarlett O'Hara's stubborn heart away from Ashley Wilkes. Both brothers ended up dying brave deaths on a battlefield in the War between the States.

Was Boone hall plantation used in Gone With the Wind?

I am a "friend of the family" that owns Boone Hall and I can say categorically it was NOT used in Gone with the Wind. Boone Hall does bear a remarkable resemblance to 12 Oaks, and that is because photographers were sent out to take pictures of various Plantations and Boone Hall was one of those photographed. The person who managed tours there at Boone Hall for many years had a book about GWTW that showed the matte photo used in the scene for the entry to 12 Oaks and you can see the similarity, but no live movie footage was taken at Boone Hall or used in GWTW.

There have been movies , TV shows, and commercials filmed at Boone Hall, most notable being "North and South" (Patrick Swayzee), "Queen" (the sequel to Roots) ( Jamine Guy, Halle Berry) and most recently "The Notebook"

Fans of the TV Show "Army Wives" might find it interesting to know an "Afghan village set" was built on the Polo Field at Boone Hall.

Ryan Seacrest filmed an opening sequence for "American Idol" on the Avenue at Boone Hall when AI was in Charleston to audition contestants.
