For the longest time I have been reluctant to study the civil war because of my preconceived notion of the war being strategically and tactically uninteresting. I was mostly interested in early modern warfare until a friend of mine loaned me Battle Cry of Freedom by Mcpherson and implored me to read it. To make a long story short I am now hooked having already purchased 10 books and read 6. I would like to start reading up on some of the units that performed well in the war so I ask you what are some of your favorite or the best units(regiment, brigade, Division, Corps) of the Civil War.
