I stand corrected....

In my recent post on the Texas board of education's attempts to re-write the history books, I attributed the quotation 'history is a set of lies agreed upon" to Napoleon Bonarparte, but according to the Yale Book of Quotations, the origin of that sentiment can actually be traced to Voltaire in 1764.  Just goes to show, you can't believe everything you read on the internets.
