Discovery : Girlhood Stories by Margaret Mitchell

Discovery (Post#31) : Girlhood Stories by Margaret Mitchell

When I was at the ground floor and exploring the House Museum, as part of “Margaret Mitchell : A Passion For character” display, I found an exhibit that portrays Margaret even at her young age that she has a talent for writing. After seeing this, I can imagine how talented the young Margaret and she’s writing stories at the age of 10. The photo is part of Margaret Mitchell House Visit Photo Collection November 2015.

“Colorful covers introduce girlhood stories written by Margaret Mitchell. The papers of Stephens Mitchell at the Kenan Research Center contain a small, handmade booklet similar to these. When intact, the 173 pages were filled with Mitchell’s cursive handwriting. The action-packed tale features a Union soldier, Hugh Warren, who though born in the South, was a spy for the North”
