If you're up for it, you have to read Shelby Foote's 3 volume series. It is brilliant in scope but in its eloquence as a work of literature. I finished Vol I&II, have V. III on my to-read pile. A labor of love.

I would also highly recommend Michael Shaara's "The Killer Angels" a historical fiction account of Gettysburg. Absolutely brilliant, wothy of the Pulitzer Prize it won in 1974.
