The first place I would look for information on the civil war would be the internet. There are a lot of accredited websites out there with plenty of useful knowledge. American history text books also give a wealth of knowledge on the Civil War. The text book even has questions at the chapter break if someone wanted to brush up.

Check out the Civil War documentary from PBS either through an online retailer or through your local library. Documentary is done by Ken Burns and is excellent.

If you want something that is not in tune with much of the crafted stuff taught in school about the Civil War, then maybe it is worth having an open mind and looking into the book: A People's History of the Civil War: Struggles for the Meaning of Freedom. It is bound to spark a new light in your mind.

You can find quick histories about the Civil War in encyclopedias or online on the internet. Wikopedia will be a good source. It depends on how much detail you want. A list of the battles and the generals who led the armies and locations would be good general information. Background on the causes and after effects would be useful.
