After 150 years and way too many movies, many of us have an unrealistic view of life in Arkansas in the Civil War era. The Historic Arkansas Museum’s feature this month makes a great use of a classic movie, “Gone With the Wind” and visual material from that difficult time in our history to clear the air.
Movie costumes, photos, and outtakes, allow visitors to enter the world of Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler, with all it’s glamor and romance. Real photos and artifacts draw the viewer to another world altogether. One where life was anything but romantic, real people living very real lives.
Minutes away from Historic Arkansas Museum, we invite you to enjoy a glimpse of the reality of our local history.
