Find an inaccurate event?
Today in History displays the events on wikipedia, so if you feel there's a problem with a specific event, or you feel the date is wrong, submit your thoughts to the wikipedia page for the specific date. For example, if there's an event in April 21st that belongs in May 21st. Go to the wikipedia page for April 21 and submit your request to change the event's date.
