History is basically one recollection, 'his story'. It is often presented by the "winner". Is history an accurate account of what actually happened?

You can start with Congress.
I understand what you are saying, but is it really accurate.I had to do a book review for an American History class in college. I stated that "all politicians are crooked." The prof. wrote, "can you prove this." I could not since it was not true.
On the contrary, loads of us were alive when history happened, it happened yesterday!
This is true. But, in the US, from our history we learn about the Patriots who fought the British for our independence. If you go to the Maritime Provinces of Canada, you hear about the Loyalist. We don't hear about loyalists, who didn't want war.

There are to facets of history. The first is the event. That is pretty straight forward. The Union won the Civil War, the Allies Won WWII. The second is cause and affect. That is when the numerous revisions and updated theories, etc come into play.
