We constantly make decisions about what to include in history books, but shaping a certain view and excluding important facts is dangerous. People should be given facts when learning history and bibliographies should point the way to more extensive reading. Subversive and controversial figures and happenings in history should continue to be mentioned if they shaped our country, but should not be to the exclusion of the mainstream life of the day or time. People get their biases from family and what they are raised into and their own personalities, they don't need to be indoctrinated through biased slants on facts. Freedom of religion, especially, needs to remain uncorrupted.
