Shelby Foote
The Civil War defined us as what we are and it opened us to being what we became, good and bad things... It was the crossroads of our being, and it was a hell of a crossroads.
Shelby Foote, The Civil War: A Narrative

Shelby Foote
I felt like anything rather than rejoicing at the downfall of a foe who had fought so long and valiantly, and had suffered so much for a cause, though that cause was, I believe, one of the worst for which a people ever fought.
Shelby Foote, The Civil War, Vol. 3: Red River to Appomattox
