Subject: Myths That Never Die

Message Detail:
"Myths That Never Die" was an article about perpetuating, sometimes knowingly, inaccurate history, I read many years ago by the late Edwin Fischel of Arlington, Virginia.

And the myths continue even on Facebook:

U.S. Army Cyber Center of Excellence
June 21 [2017] Edited

On this day ...

... in 1860, the FY1861 Appropriations Bill, which had a provision directing the creation of the U.S. Army Signal Corps, was signed by President James Buchanan. Thus, June 21 is now celebrated as the corps' birthday. Happy 157th Birthday Signal Corps!

And the above is attributed to the U.S. Army Cyber Center of Excellence, no doubt. -- Need I say more?
