Not a true brain teaser, but I figure people may be away for the looooong weekend.
I saw an article today complaining about how much new research gets left out of books about the Revolutionary War. I’m not a history buff, but in my skimming of the article it seems his primary complaint is that books tend to go for narrative over ambiguous but accurate portrayals of events. No kidding.
This got me thinking though, of a question for this week:
What historical fallacy, commonly taught in schools or repeated in the press, is most annoying to you?
Feel free to define “historical fallacy” as you see fit…I have no agenda here…I’m just genuinely curious.
Happy 4th of July everyone!
