    That's so sad, he was my favorite Cival War historian.

    Amazing, he was my grandpa. My Grandma Gwyn has told me that he left me a
    kings ransom in
    civil war collectibles. I guess I'm filthy rich now, once I sell it all!!!

    Yeah, Mine too!
    Pssst! Hey, just between you and me "cival" is the incorrect spelling of the
    word civil. You all be happy to know that although dear Shelby has passed
    on, his two brothers Athletes and Club are doing well. His twin sisters Left
    and Right Footeare also well and it has been announced that Left Foote will
    soon be married to her long time sweetheart Roger Print and she will be
    keeping her maiden name which will be joined with Mr. Prints name and will
    be then known as "Left Foote-print"

    now tell me that shit isn't funny

    Yeah. I can't say that his passing came unexpected though. He appeared to
    be closing in on his final hours when he did the decade-later "follow-up
    interviews" for Ken Burns' Civil War DVD set. You can easily see that the
    last ten years had taken a toll of both his physical well-being and mental
    facilities.

    He'll be missed. In tribute, I think I'll re-read through his three-volume
    narrative again. I have a hard-backed set and last read through them about
    six or so years ago.

    RIP Mr. Foote

    Of all the Erass I've known, "Eras" is the Erasiest.
    Yes, I guess you could say he already had a "Foote" in the grave, LOL?

    I'm just going to listen to his books on tape. I know the 35 tapes are a lot
    to listen to, but if I
    listen while I sleep I will remember more of it.

    listen to an old man who has diminished mental capabilities ramble on about
    the Civil war. I think what may have aged the poor fellow is having hear
    his own voice drumming over and over inside his own head. After a while he
    may have started to believe that he was an actual Civil war solider telling
    his stories in the first person.

    the side of his casket which in fact will be in she shape of a shoe(what
    else would you put a foote in), first 100 mourners get a free pair of Nikes

    Listen, it's perfectly fine for us to disagree about Foote's contributions
    to his field, but you're just out of line. The man is dead. Show some
    respect.

    Of all the Russell Bs I've known, "Russell B" is the Russell Biest.
    REALLY. Who is this "Clint" fellow to call Shelby Foote "ignorant"
    anyway? He's obviously never seen an historical documentary featuring
    Foote's commentaries, because he is anything *but* ignorant. What an
    uneducated such-and-such!
