When did revisionist history enter the english language?

We've long lived with revisionist history. Progressives have made the founders into racists, many of them into atheists, but there has to be a way to track this down, right? It actually comes from Germany. Once again, we see how the roots of progressivism comes from "Germanic ideals" or "Prussianism".(some of the ways it used to be phrased in the early 20th century - see my archives for previous discussion on this) And revisionist history is yet another tendril of this tree root. Marxists.org has the actual article where it first entered into the English language, but I can't blame anybody for not wanting to give web hits to these people. The title of the article is "Revisionism in Germany", written by J. B. Askew. Here:  http://www.marxists.org/history/international/social-democracy/social-democrat/1...

Wikipedia has an article about Revisionism in the Marxist tradition. Here  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revisionism_%28Marxism%29   While I generally distrust Wikipedia, I do generally think this makes sense in that the attribution of Revisionism as a whole goes to Eduard Bernstein.(and Jean Jaures) Here's what it says:

   who sought to revise Karl Marx's ideas about the transition to socialism and claimed that a revolution through force was not necessary to achieve a socialist society. The views of Bernstein and Jaurès gave rise to reformist theory, which asserts that socialism can be achieved through gradual peaceful reforms from within a capitalist system.

The image caption on the right says the following:

   Eduard Bernstein, originator of the original Revisionism.


I found this to be intriguing, as well as the whole timing, considering that (As I've previously noted here http://progressingamerica.blogspot.com/2011/09/henry-george-and-birth-of-fabian.... ) one of the major precursors to Fabian Socialism in Britain(and in the US I might add) is Henry George's Book. In the late 1800's. Also, this is right around the time that progressivism rears it's ugly little head. Late 1800's, early 1900's. And how Bernstein ties into this is incredible. He wrote the book on Evolutionary Socialism, in 1899. I think this may be it's English translation.  http://books.google.com/books?id=sK2ZAAAAIAAJ

Now think about that for a second. Does not "Evolutionary Socialism" perfectly describe Fabianism? And while we're at it, does it not also in large part describe progressivism? I can't help but see that all these puzzle pieces fit together perfectly.

Progressives today don't want to discuss their own history. I want to discuss their history.&&&&(Quote)If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle - Sun Tzu (Art of War, Chapter 3)
