There must have been a shortage of men after the Civil War. There were 224,586 men died from disease alone and almost 229,000 died in action, or from other accidents or from their wounds. It is a history Americans will never forget nor do they wish to repeat. Romance after the Civil War must have been in short supply, making me wonder if that contributed to the writing of the romance novel, “Gone With the Wind.”
Suellen Ocean is the author of the Civil War Era Historic Romance, Black Pansy.
