Shelby Foote, Sr., had been a no-count rich manís son, a gambler and a boozer right up to the day he married Lillian Rosenstock . . . . Lillian must have had a miraculous effect on Shelby. Shortly after they married in 1915, he suddenly turned serious and in seven years worked his way up from shipping clerk to general manager of the Armour and Company meat packing firm. But as fate would have it, he had little time to savor his worldly success. The responsibilities of his new position took him to the coastal town of Mobile, Alabama, and shortly thereafter he succumbed to a bacterial infection that twenty-five years later would have been cured by a few doses of penicillin.
