Welcome to the board from another newbie. For a balanced introduction try Battle Cry Of Freedom. Sorry I don't recall the author. I feel it gives one of the most balanced perspectives on political, economic and abolitionist reasons that there was a war.  I am just now reading  the Civil War  a narative by Shelby Fote. It is a series of books that helps to place all the major battles and events in cronological relation. I got it for Christmas and just now am upto Vicksburg- Gettysburg volume.
