Shelby Dade Foote, Jr. (November 17, 1916 - June 27, 2005) was an American historian and novelist who wrote The Civil War: A Narrative, a massive, three-volume history of the war. With geographic and cultural roots in the Mississippi Delta, Footes life and writing paralleled the radical shift from the agrarian planter system of the Old South to the Civil Rights era of the New South. Foote was relatively unknown to the general public for most of his life until his appearance in Ken Burnss PBS documentary The Civil War in 1990, where he introduced a generation of Americans to a war that he believed was central to all our lives.
