I remember when they held a re-enactment of a slave auction down in Williamsburg, VA (totally done within the context of a period re-enactment) and people went nuts about it. You are right - if we start erasing or trying to hide all of our history that may be unpleasant or controversial - there won't be any history left. There are places where that has already happened, one is called China and the other is called Germany. Not good examples to follow.
