Noted Southern writer and even more noted Civil War Historian, Shelby Foote has died.
Many of you remember him as the backbone of Ken Burns "The Civil War" documentary. I read Foote's civil war trilogy and liked it very much, an excellent companion to James McPherson's "Battle Cry of Freedom" in that Foote writes from a southern perspective, but not as an apologists.
On the other hand, I could be wrong about that last sentence.
