Evening all.

Have read quite a few regimental histories in my day, and main reason why I like them is that they put the Civil War on a more personal level, as you are in the trenches and on the march with the common soldiers as they fought the battles.

3 of my faves in this category are:

"Irish Rebels, Confederate Tigers: The 6th Louisiana Volunteers, 1861-1865"  by James P. Gannon, 1998 Savas Publishing.

"The Pride of the Confederate Artillery: The Washington Artillery in the Army of Tennessee" by Nathaniel Cheairs Hughes, Jr., 1997 LSU Press

"Covered With Glory: The 26th North Carolina Infantry at Gettysburg" by Rod Gragg, 2000 HarperCollins.

I could list more but these three are good starting points IMHO.

Regards from the Garden State,
