The Civil War Monitor

I have picked up The Civil War Monitor lately.  I really like this magazine, as it has a more casual feel than some of the other Civil War magazines available.

The Fall issue does cover the Confederate flag controversy (as a lot of magazines have lately).  There is an update on the Civil War Trust.  They had a really interesting article on environmental factors at the First Battle of Manassas.  Another article I liked involved self exiled Confederates moving out of the US after the war, and what became of their descendants.

The Civil War Monitor does more than just give edited accounts of various battles, AND the mag is great about including interesting photos from the period.  I would love to hear from anyone else with an opinion on the best Civil War magazines out there.
