Jefferson penned the Declaration of Independence, but the important parts were largely copied from the Virginia Declaration of Rights. So I wouldn't say that Jefferson wrote, or primarily wrote, the Declaration of Independence.--Andy Schlafly 18:59, 4 November 2011 (EDT)

About Cortes & Pizzaro
I am a bit disappointed by the definitions given to Hernando Cortes & Francisco Pizzaro. It appears to mean that they succeeded only by their skills while most historians agree that diseases were probably the most formidable opponent of the Aztecs & the Incas.--PhilipN 23:26, 6 December 2011 (EST)
Siege of Vienna.
The siege of Vienna is described in entirely religious terms. Is this really accurate? There were a number of Christians fighting for the Ottomans (Hungarians and Serbs mostly). Also, it says that the Swastika was used for 'mind control'. Somewhat badly phrased? Cmurphynz 06:33, 2 November 2012 (EDT)
