I was trying to find the perfect post to demonstrate the benefits of threaded comments as well as the other features that Disqus offers and came across the following from January 6, 2009 on Lee and historical memory. It’s not the post that I want you to focus on, but the comments. First, I think the discussion moves much more smoothly with the threaded format, but more importantly, your comments are incredibly thoughtful. Readers are engaged with the topic at hand and are listening to one another. Hell, I don’t think you are going to find a more thoughtful and intelligent group of readers anywhere else in the blogosphere. Give yourselves a hand and give Disqus a try.

"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."
