Shelby Foote passes away

Historian Shelby Foote has passed away at the age of 88. Foote was featured on Ken Burns' 1990 PBS documentary, The Civil War.

I recently rented the documentary from Netflix and watched it for probably the 4th or 5th time. He made the whole documentary more believable and more...human, if that's the right word.
