Bad History

There’s a lot of bad history out there. People abuse and misuse history all the time for their own ideological or political ends. Sometimes people are just ignorant of history. Fortunately, in the blogosphere, there’s an antidote: The Carnival of Bad History. Jonathan has posted The Carnival of Bad History #6 at Frog in a Well. Naturally, there’s lots of stuff on that ultimate in bad history (which I happen to take a great deal of interest in), Holocaust denial, but there are also debunked examples of lots of other bad history too. Enjoy.
