The next wave in public history

... appears to be "stop mediating the public's history."

I see that Civil War Preservation Trust, preparing a story of the Battle of Chancelorsville, has invited National History Inc. to create an "interpretation" of the battlefield.

National History Inc. has resolved "to hear from residents about how to tell the story about what happened along a creek called Lick Run west of Chancellor Elementary School."

Perfect. At this rate even Ken Burns will be out of a job soon.
