History is our tree of life. We pay too little attention to it, we repeat our mistakes, and as we technically progress we fail culturally.
So much of history will never be unearthed, and much of history is myth. We can see our present time connected to history as with strings that tie  who we are and how we behave to our past. If we get our history wrong we get ourselves wrong 
Its up to individual faith to decide what version of history to accept. Our truth is best un-veiled with a combination of dedicated study and honesty. Each one of us is made from 4.5 billion years of effort that holds inside us all the past eternity, and surely the future as well.

Thirty Years War, Prelude to Democracy

A story from Josephus's writings confirms that Daniel's prophecies were received centuries before Alexander the Great conquered the world.

In 332 B.C. Alexander besieged and defeated the coastal cities of Tyre and Gaza in his march toward Egypt. During this campaign he turned toward Jerusalem. Alexander had already demanded men and supplies from the Jews, who were under the rule of Alexander's mortal enemy, the Persian king Darius. The high priest hesitated, saying that while Darius lived they would honor their pledge. Alexander was angry and began a move on the city.
