It seems like every few years another front opens up in the so-called “History Wars.” In the 1990s there was the battle over the proposed National History Standards and the fight over the Enola Gay exhibit. In the 2000s there was the debate over the Texas Social Studies Standards. Now it seems that people are not happy with the changes made to the Advanced Placement United States History curriculum. It is apparently too revisionist.
Stay with us today. My next post will include some of my own thoughts on revisionism.
