Shelby Foote - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (827 words)
Although he was not one of America's best-known fiction writers, Foote was admired by his peers—among them his lifelong friend Walker Percy.
Foote's ability to create a realistic portrayal of the American Civil War — factually accurate, richly detailed, and entering into the minds of men on both sides — led his editors at Random House to invite him to write a short history of the war to appear for the conflict's centennial.
In 1987, he became a charter member of the Fellowship of Southern Writers at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
