If you're interested in well-researched "history as fiction," I am not at all reluctant to recommend my own "easy to read and understand" books.
They are "To Make Men Free; a Novel of the Battle of Antietam," and "No Greater Courage; a Novel of the Battle of Fredericksburg." They contain no ficticious characters or events and were proofed by the historians at Antietam and Fredericksburg NBPs.

Subject: [TalkAntietam] Books
I am sending this to the civil war groups I belong to. Looking for a list
of good Civil War books that are easy to read and understand. Also, looking
for a list of good books about ghosts of the civil war in Gettysburg,
Antietam, Manasses, Bull Run and areas in the general area. I have most of
Shelby Foote's books and one by Ken Burns already, along with a few others.
Thank you guys very much.
