According to my Feedburner account there are currently 2,542 people who subscribe to Civil War Memory via RSS Feed (the vast majority through Google Reader). That seems like a pretty good number to me, but at the same time I am told that I “Reach” 0 people. What is Reach? “Reach is the total number of people who have taken action — viewed or clicked — on the content in your feed.” So, am I correct in assuming that my RSS readers never click through to view the blog or is there a problem with this statistic? What am I not understanding about RSS Feeds?

"In this stunning and well-researched book, Kevin Levin catches the new waves of the study of memory, black soldiers, and the darker underside of the Civil War as well as anyone has... Levin is both superb scholar and public historian, showing us a piece of the real war that does now get into the books, as well as into site interpretation."
David Blight, Author of Race and Reunion
