You might have heard lately of the passing of someone named Shelby Foote, and if youâ€™ve ever watched Ken Burnâ€™s epic The Civil War, youâ€™ve no doubt seen him. I love that documentary because it just feeds my passion for history, and Shelby Footeâ€™s commentary is a big reason I enjoy it so much. He just has a way of making things more interesting to listen to.
If you havenâ€™t watched it before, be absolutely sure to catch it next time PBS runs it, or just go out and buy the DVD set already. I plan on rewatching it very soon.
