I started a discussion on this a year or so ago, but was never posted into the official Army Lists by Rich...

28mm, using the excellent Perry Miniatures figures.

I don't, as I went 15mm for my ACW stuff. But if I were considering 28mm, the Perry stuff would be the top of my list. Their sculpts are pretty uniformly amazing. If you want period fencing, split-rail fences were pretty common to the period and are easy to make. Also, I posted a tutorial on making dry-stone walls in the "Miniatures, Modeling, & Scenery" sub-forum that might be of interest to you: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=10109

The ACW plastics are definitely the newer style plastics, being far more evenly proportioned than the old plastics. I can't say how well they scale with the metals, but my assumption is that they'll be a little slighter.

Germane to this topic, I just picked up an interesting book titled "A World on Fire: Britain's Critical Role in the American Civil War" by Amanda Foreman. I need to finish the Chickamauga trilogy I'm currently chewing my way through before I'll have a chance to dive into it in depth, but I wanted to mention it as it pretty much directly deals with the subject of this thread.
