Once more, the novel illustrates African Americans are running wild and committing “outrages” while the United States Army is running for Georgia. The story remains near Scarlett’s perspective. However, with her virtuous mind and egotistical nature, it is not really an exact wellspring of history about Reconstruction. At the point when Scarlett sees Big Sam, an individual from the Tara “family”, the entry is loaded up with racial undertones. Big Sam’s eyes, white teeth, and his “watermelon-pink tongue” are stereotypes of African Americans. Mitchell looks at his joy at seeing her to a dog swaying its tail at its owner.
Big Sam’s story about the North exhibits one of the tricky issues with slavery: its enduring impacts, even on slaves who were treated well. Sam needs somebody to take care of him, and he is awkward when Yankees address him pleasantly and welcome him to sit with them at meals. While he may never have been beaten, he has been candidly scarred. Presently, despite the fact that he does not need to remain at Tara, he needs to return since it is protected. Many liberated slaves were uncertain how to help themselves in this new world; frequently they found themselves working in estates. In some ways, this new life was not an awesome change over the slavery framework.
Concerning Scarlett's assault and attempted rape, it is both appalling and, in some ways, unsurprising. Scarlett knows she is in a perilous territory; everybody has cautioned her. This does not decrease the awfulness of the end result for her, yet it makes it simple to foresee other individuals’ responses.
