I love Shelby Foote's trilogy, I was hooked from Chapter 1, but saying that I would still tend come down on the side of Bruce Catton whose writing has the stamp of the professional historian. The "Army of the Potomac" trilogy, the "Coming Fury" trilogy, the Grant double, "Grant Moves South",& "Grant Takes Command", all terrific reading.
The Storyteller V. The Historian, should be an easy choice for history lovers but in this case it is close, very close..
