11 significant history facts interpreted differently by other countries

It is hard to believe the way they treat the same historical events in different countries.

It may seem that history is a sequence of accomplished facts and we have no reasons for any dubious interpretation. But in reality it turns out to be otherwise.

Here is a collection of several examples, proving that history is one of the most inexact sciences.

What a a load of absolute trash! This is so unbelievably juvenile and tunnel-visioned that it simply takes my breath away. Don't believe this piffle. Read serious books on the subject from different countries and engage with people from there to get a better picture. And above all, be aware of how skewed your own country's view is.

War of 1812, very significant in Canada, when Americans tried to take Canada, and failed. Little attention paid to it in the States, but if they had won there would be no Canada. Can you imagine Trump as our leader!! 🇨🇦

Virginia Saltiel-Adams, yes I can see Trump as a leader of Canada or any other country. Someone please come and pick him up.

As thee famous historian, Bernard Lewis once wrote. History does not change only the way we view it.

In Australia we were not taught about The Revolutionary War, the American Civil War or the Spanish American War.

My favorite quotation of all time is by the historian/philosopher George Santayana: "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." This is one of the reasons that we DO NOT learn. History is being taught on the basis of OPINION, rather than FACTS.

All reasonably thoughtful students world wide realize their education is biased by their mid teen years.

Going to primary school in both Scotland and England I was taught two versions of the same historical facts - the wars were another matter.

Richard Adams, Now in USA , ppl are trying to erase the history because they don't like it and rewrite the way they want to hear.

In my opinion, all history is relative. If there is ever a matter that reminds one to not always believe what one is told and to come to one's conclusion, for me, it is historical events. Everyone wants to be seen as the hero, and while there are two sides to every story, there is often bias to the victor. It is up to the learner, to learn both sides, especially if we don't want certain parts of history to repeat themselves.
