Fact is Chuck a little time in the primary sources and you would see how wrong you are. Revisionist history is very popular and sells text books bottom line. Just look how they have began to demonize Christians in our history. Major events spark revisionist. The feminist movement changed how women were viewed in history. It varies from event to event. Historians are not suppose to be influenced by popular thought when they write. They are suppose to let the sources tell the story. For example the recent surge in homosexuality ideals has lead to so called historians to write that Abe was gay because he shared a bed with his male secretary. So be careful what you swallow as truth.
