    I would say Marxist historians, because some of the greatest historians of the 20th century were Marxists, and were using Marx's analysis of History as well as class to inform previously obscured material. This lead to Charles Beard and many others giving a wide revision of American history, which then lead to a conservative reaction against their contributions to the discipline.

    My criticism was in the way you had used "revisionist history," not what ought be the historical narrative.

    Freed the southern slaves, but gave them nothing else.

    After the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, his successor, Andrew Johnson, revoked Sherman's Orders and returned the land to its previous white owners.

    You said you couldn;t think of anything about Irish American Heritage. The formerly puritan city was transformed into a catholic one by the massive influx of Irish.

    Boston is now the embodiment of Irish American heritage.
