Historical accounts are often corrected and refined under the direction of current powers-that-be.

HISTORY, from Latin histro­n­ia (“dra­mat­ic art”). A de­scrip­tion of events, from the per­spec­tive of the en­ti­ty re­port­ing them. There are three ma­jor his­tor­i­cal pe­ri­ods: Con­trivance, Com­pli­ca­tion, and Res­o­lu­tion.

Our un­der­stand­ing of his­to­ry is con­stant­ly chang­ing and be­ing rewrit­ten in a pro­cess known as re­vi­sion. The archiv­ing of so­cial me­dia by gov­ern­ments has al­lowed its def­i­ni­tion to evolve be­yond its pri­or rigid fix­a­tion on events of the past to in­clude those of the present as well, the ac­count of which can be cor­rect­ed and en­hanced as the need re­quires.
