Fire & Fury regimental is very good, well written and easy to understand.

Rebels & Patriots is great if you want to play skirmishes

Pickett’s Charge is good but quite complex.

Longstreet is excellent for pickup games; it also works well for historical battles, but only for small-ish ones because of the way the command model works. Very nice set of rules and now I think I should put on another game using these. Not played ACW in ages!

Black Powder is OK, but I always feel like I’ve played a game of Black Powder rather than fought a historical battle, if you see what I mean.
