Teach the “truth ” about history ? when have we ever done that ? We act like the French just were on our side in the Revolution , and not much more ( When if not for their downplayed action , we would be flying the British flag to this day ) , then comes the subject of the Civil War , ” oh those ” evil ” Confederates ” ………everybody knows it about slavery , right ? , and Lincoln was pure as the driven snow , right ? WRONG !!!…………Then how about WW2 ? , the US kicked everybody ass, all by ourselves , while the British and Russians just cheered us on….Yeah right !!!….. I could go on , but you get the picture . Only those students interested enough in learning and digging deep for the truth in history will find it . The information is out there , its just not being generally taught . slanted history yes , but not “truth ” history .
