Nope.  It happened.  It is real. 

History is a review of the good, the bad and the ugly.

There are some things that cannot be swept under the rug and shouldn't be.

History is real.  Cherry picking is how revisionism begins.  What's next ?  WW II didn't happen ?

We already have a host of Holocaust deniers.

1933 – Prohibition in the United States ends: Utah becomes the 36th U.S. state to ratify the Twenty-first Amendment to the United States Constitution, thus establishing the required 75% of states needed to enact the amendment. (This overturned the 18th Amendment which had made the manufacture, sale, or transportation of alcohol illegal in the United States.)
