Best Answer

Because many historical events are struggles/ competitions/ battles/ conflicts/ etc. That means that there will be a winner and loser (not always as black and white as that). When the winner is recognized as a winner/ victor, he is allowed to tell his side of the story. Essentially, only half of history exists today.
