|I've been to the house where Stonewall died as well. It's out in the middle of nowhere, which enhances the experience.
Western Theatre routes? Lots of good ones.
You could hit Nashville, Franklin, Spring Hill, Stones River, Shiloh, and then Fort Donelson in as little as 4 days or as long as 6 days.
If you want Trans-Mississippi:
Wilson's Creek, Pea Ridge, and Prarie Grove could all be done in 2 days.
A tour of the Vicksburg campaign could take you 2 days: Jackson, Raymond, Champion Hill, Grand Gulf, and then the Vicksburg battlefield.
You could do Chattanooga/Chickamauga in one or two days. (Preferably two.)
I've followed the trail of the Great Locomotive Chase, near Atlanta. You can do that in one day. You could extend it by a day or two if you included sites in and around Atlanta and Kennesaw Mountain.
You could combine the last two entries into a nice 5 day vacation.
It all depends on how much time you have and how much you want to engross yourself in Civil War history.
