More PC creepiness in History

Recall the stories of American History textbooks airbrushing out FDR's famous cigarette holder clenched in his toothy grin. Looks like the Brits have decided to hold a celebration of a famous historical naval battle, but to hide the identity of the participants least the losers be offended.

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain celebrated an epic naval victory Tuesday but a descendant of its hero Admiral Horatio Nelson said the Battle of Trafalgar bicentenary was trying too hard not to offend historical enemies France and Spain.

A highlight of the world's biggest naval review was featuring two fleets enacting a 19th century sea battle.

But they have been called simply the red and the blue fleet rather than by country names, which has sparked a shot across the bows from Nelson's great great great granddaughter.

"I am anti-political correctness. Very much against it. It makes fools of us," said 75-year-old Anna Tribe.
