Recently widowed Scarlett at the hospital benefit after Rhett offers $150. in gold to dance with her. "For what lady, sir? Mrs. Charles Hamilton. For whom sir? Mrs. Charles Hamilton. Mrs. Hamilton is in mourning, Captain Butler...she will not consider it ,sir. Oh, yes, I will! Choose your partners for the Virginia reel. We've sort of shocked the Confederacy. It's a bit like blockade running, isn't it? It's worse. I don't care what they think. I'm going to dance and dance."
