Who was Wade Hampton?

What is the connection to Gone With the Wind?

Best answer, courtesy of a reader:

“Wade Hampton was a civil engineer back in the early days of Vienna and designed out some of our roadways. He was known for designing especially tight and blind turns such as the current Wade Hampton/Roland Rd and Walnut Lane. He would often be quoted when people complained about this design as saying, “Frankly, my Dear, I don’t give a damn if you don’t like my roadway designs.”  The phrase was later ripped off by the writer of Gone With the Wind.”
