Dictionaries do not agree in all things, but upon one point there is no difference of opinion: history is avowedly a recital of actual occurrences. Yet how often have we known blatant inaccuracies in historical records ; and how many times have we accepted as true some fictitious statement which was meted out to us, through the ignorance, conjecture or lack of information of some chronicler!
