A Giant among Historians has passed on.

Story here.

Mrs. Mosley, who hails from Mississippi, has often said that had she spent more of her childhood in that state, she would have a gentle, charming southern accent like Shelby Foote. Indeed, listening to him tell stories in Ken Burn's "The Civil War" is one of the pinnacles of that massively accomplished work.

Rest in Peace.
