I also found The Union War to be a good source. Another one is What this Cruel War was Over by Chandra Manning. Interestingly, I've read statements from Gallagher which sound like he saw his book as a refutation of Manning's. I read both and don't really see where they disagree. Seems like Gallagher didn't like her tone more than anything.
I got that impression too from conversations and articles I had read. Yet, like you, can't see much difference when reading their two books.
