One of our greatest historians. He will be sorely missed. Go to your eternal rest with our fondest wishes, Shelby Foote. You've helped America understand such a tragic era in our history with insight, authority, and compassion.

Would you classify him as a "historian"? I don't know that I would. I think of him more as a novelist who happened to be very, very knowledgable on the period of the Civil War. His books read so much better than any other history books. I must have read the three-part series five or six times now. If was was a historian, he's the most talented writer of the bunch.
