well said.
 
I should have said 'the study of history' rather than merely 'history'.
 
My poor point is that historians don't come to conclusions lightly. McPherson, Foner, et al, have forgotten more history than I'll ever know. They know how to find it, weigh it and incorporate it into their world view.
 
the tendency for me, and many, is to discard history that does not conform with our world view rather it changing our world view...
