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.
