Rewriting US history

America’s love affair with history shows no signs of coming to an end.

The ongoing discussion over the rights and wrongs of flying the Confederate flag or toppling statues of Stonewall Jackson and Robert Lee is proof enough that the past still lingers long in the present. Historic militaria – from the Revolutionary period to the Second World War – is a strong and strengthening market.

Revisionist history is retelling the stories Americans thought they knew. The opening in April of the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia is shedding new light on the role of black people, women, privateers and loyalists in the struggle for independence. A series of events is also being planned for 2019 – the 400th anniversary of the arrival of African slaves in America.
