Atlanta Marks Anniversary Of Margaret Mitchell’s Death

The Georgia Bulletin comes out this week on the 63rd anniversary of Margaret Mitchell’s death, August 16. The writer’s short-lived life of nearly 49 years was ended five days after a car struck her at the intersection of 13th and Peachtree Street. I recently traced some Atlanta landmarks that are closely associated with Mitchell. The cool thing is you can still drive by them today. On the other hand, if you want to save somewhere in the neighborhood of $3.61 per gallon in gas, you can view them on the Google Map of Martha Mitchell’s Atlanta provided below. Also check out the August 16 issue of The Georgia Bulletin to discover the connection between the Mitchell family and the Archdiocese of Atlanta.  Michael Alexander, Staff Photographer
