It's unfortunate that these sorts of honest and accurate depictions of events weren't available for other periods of history. Instead, what we always seemed to get were sensationalized accounts which overly dramatized what were, in fact, humdrum events.
It's high time we rewrote history to conform to the more up to date, sophisticated standards of great newspapers like the New York Times and the Washington Post.
Here are some early Romans holding a peaceful love-in that involved a few Sabine women:
Here are some of Genghis Khan's Mongol peaceniks on their way to a friendly demonstration in Baghdad:
Here are Tamerlane and his nonviolent protesters outside the ancient city of Urganj, in what is now Turkmenistan:
Here is Atlanta after General Sherman led a peaceful protest march through the city:
Here's Winston Churchill inspecting the aftermath of a peaceful rally by the Luftwaffe in Battersea:
And here's Dresden after a counter protest by the Allies:
Imagine how much clearer our understanding of history might be if only it had been recorded by modern journalists. Small wonder that the New York Times has garnered 117 Pulitzer Prizes, and the Washington Post 47, for their hard-hitting reporting.
