Most historical games I've played in you either can change things or what history actually records is beyond your reach to change (although you still could if you managed to).But in this instance, I'm only using the parts of canon that are useful to them. I can understand not wanting to be beholden to a story that came before, it's part of the reason why I personally do not like Historical gaming. History is effectively the same thing as Canon, so if you can't change it, why bother playing?
I would see Historical gaming more as playing the life of somebody in Ancient Rome let's say, with Rome set up to be accurate at the time you start, but with no expectation that everything literally plays out as it did in real life once the players start.
