Being an Historian is not an easy task. Hours and hours of research are an integral part of the process, along with close attention to the credibility of the source of material. Over the years and even into this year of 2014, we hear, see, and read about "Revisionist History." Back in 1924, as seen in the two graphics above, the subject again came up as schools across America were involved in a controversial effort to choose books; in this case relating largely to the Revolutionary War. Were you to pickup a number of vintage history books written and published by British authors and publishers, you would probably find discrepancies in the history books as written by American authors as to the events which took place during the Revolutionary War. Likewise, with German publishers of vintage accounts of the Hessians at Trenton during that fateful Christmas day, 1776, I would expect to read conflicting historical accounts from the Hessian side of the ledger. Accordingly, whenever there are conflicting accounts of an historical event, both sides should be included in the research.
