I had the pleasure of meeting Shelby Foote, in the US military cemetery at Colleville St Laurent near Omaha beach in Normandy France. He was looking at a grave, as we were passing he said "I have found you at last". When he moved away from the grave, I asked if he had found a relative, he said "no, I am checking for someone in England". On my next visit to the cemetery some years later I noted the graves of the Niland brothers near where I had met Shelby, the family that was the bases of Speilbergs film saving private Ryan, the scene at the grave in the film reminded me of the way Shelby spoke when I first saw him, I wonder if he did research for the film?. Im so sad at his passing I had wish I'd written to him years ago, I go to the cemetery in memory of the young G.I's that was kind to us children back in England while whey waited for D-Day. God Bless them and Shelby Foote.

We never know how we will affect others' lives. You were blessed be able to pursue and interest that you loved and, at the same time, make an invaluable contribution to your fellow Americans and the Southland that you loved so much.

Mr. Foote, I remember when you narrated the fictional sibling war between Marcia and Jan Brady with as much dignity you gave to your Civil War series and thinking you had a sense of humor!

I keep returning here to your grave site. Sir, your contributions are without measure; your understanding of this Great South beyond compare. You are missed by those who loved you and by us who never knew you personally. I do pray you were always loved enough while you were here and that we shall all meet someday when our Lord calls us to Himself.

Many years after the Civil War, Sergeant Berry Benson, a South Carolina veteran from McGowan's brigade, Army of Northern Virginia, who had enlisted at age 18, three months before Fort Sumter was fired upon, and served through Appomattox, made an interesting statement. He said that when he got around to composing his reminiscences, he found that reliving the war in words made him wish he could relive it in fact, and he came to believe that he and his fellow soldiers, gray and blue, might one day be able to to do just that; if not here on earth, then afterwards in Valhalla. "Who knows, " he asked, "but it may be given to us, after this life, to meet again in the old quarters, to play chess and draughts, to get up soon to answer the morning roll call, to fall in at the tap of the drum for drill and dress parade, and again to hastily don our war gear while the monotonous patter of the long roll summons to battle? Who knows but again the old flags, ragged and torn, snapping in the wind, may face each other and flutter, pursuing and pursued, while the cries of victory fill a summer day? And after the batrtle, then the slain and wounded will arise, and all will be talking and laughter and cheers, and all will say: Did it not seem real? Was it not as in the old days?"
