Perhaps after I've re-read McPherson's book (which I found much more "readable" than either trilogy) I'll resume Foote.

Thanks for your comments.

thank you for the report!...

i found the foote 'trilogy' in the library, started reading it on a whim.... not really much of a civil war student, but it really got me interested, i liked the guy's style, plus it was the southern point of view that i found interesting, really never knew... i've seen shelby foote on the history channel some, interesting guy........

would love to see some of where you went, would bring it more to life.... was really some heinous shizzit.... gotta check out this mcpherson book.....
