Shelby Foote was born in Greenville on Friday, November 17, 1916 (G.I. Generation generation). He is 107 years old and is a Scorpio. 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, Foote’s 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 Burns’s 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”. Foote did all his writing by hand with an old-fashioned nib pen, disdaining the typewriter. His detailed historical accounts of the Civil War focus on everything from intimate moments (such as Robert E. Lee’s tearful, post-surrender address to his Confederate troops) to large-scale military strategy.

He attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and wrote for the university’s literary journal. He published his debut novel, Tournament, in 1949. Shelby Dade Foote, Jr. attended University of North Carolina (attended 1935-37). Shelby Foote is a member of Richest Celebrities and Historians.
