What specifically about the Civil war? Do you have an actual word limit rather than an arbitrary page limit?
Have the best books on the subject anyway:
Battle Cry of Freedom: The Civil War Era, James M. McPherson http://libgen.io/book/index.php?md5=4F44168A3708AC01C7D6246339EB67BA
The Civil War: A Narrative, Shelby Foote http://libgen.io/book/index.php?md5=180825286F509637549F19B0CFA0E185 http://libgen.io/book/index.php?md5=CDC917810C8C354F32ECD93F2ADC9C74 http://libgen.io/book/index.php?md5=A335836A20C6AF4399B0014568FAB7A5
>>536692 Bit awkward, then Shelby Foote's work would be great for it, considering it is a narrative history of the Civil war, though for obvious reasons you'll have to tone it down considering he wrote three volumes on it, focus on all the major events of the war, and their impacts, some other reading I remember using when I wrote an essay relating to the Civil War a few years back The Confederate Nation, 1861-1865, Emory M. Thomas http://libgen.io/book/index.php?md5=94d4ec19c3452dbf91206d4ec1990acf
The American Civil War: Causes, course and Consequences, Alan Farmer http://libgen.io/book/index.php?md5=4818c2fe18e46999378e6b30257e08d8
Why the Confederacy Lost, Gabor S. Borritt http://libgen.io/book/index.php?md5=34afbb1409e538e0fcd2ca019f0a32d5
>>536692 What the fuck kind of essay is that? You're just summarizing what happened in the war? Just paraphrase Wikipedia and cite its sources.
5 star topics: >What political issues have been the focus of the federal government for the 70 years prior to the acw? Bonus points if you discuss bleeding Kansas. >Why did the South want to secede? >Why did the north not want the South to secede? >Throughout the war what was the southern and northern strategy? >How did military tactics change from the start to the end of the war and why? What implications did that have for wars in the future? >What was the North's plan for reintegration and reconstruction and what consequences did it have?
Remember, in the wider context of US history the particulars of the battles of the war are irrelevant unless you're specifically interested in military history.
