Unless you actually lived it, history lessons are nothing but stories told by someone’s who’s got a stake in it. But what happens when they get the details all wrong, or leave out one key piece of information? Then that kind of defeats the whole purpose of the history lesson and changes the context completely.
Here’s some events that have little pieces of trivia that are left out of the retelling, to give that lesson more weight, or to teach us a valuable moral and patriotic lesson, or to repaint the events of long ago into something more significant and noble than they really were.
Makes you wonder what else history is hiding from us?
