Rhett Butler-Romantic Blockade Runner
the book's and character's status in American lore, when many people today think of the men of blockade runners, they usually think of Butler first. There has provoked a discussion around the Hampton Roads Naval Museum of the accuracy of this statement. What do you think? I provided Two You Tube clip from the 1939 Gone With the Wind. The first is the "practical" Rhett Butler and the second is the "romantic" Rhett Butler.
