Changing American History?
This post presents an interesting point of view on American History. However, it is one that could easily lead to excessive and misguided revisionist history writing. There are always over-zealous American apologists. These folks would happily and totally rewrite American history to suite their ideological perspective, regardless of accuracy and truth.
Revisions based on efforts to keep his tory accurate and to ensure that facts are facts are fine. Improving the historical record is a good thing. However, politically-motivated changes to historic facts to further one’s political agenda are not. People need to be careful.
History is Already in Danger
It never ceases to amaze me how little of our history kids today even know. It is scary as well. History has shown us time and time again, that those who forget their history are doomed to repeat it. In fact, it is happening again in American society.
A Shining Beacon on the Hill!
In addition, there is nothing wrong with a little bit of national pride!
