Primary Sources

Primary sources are original materials from the time period and not filtered through interpretation or evaluation.  When looking for primary sources consider diaries, correspondences (letters), personal narratives, interviews, photographs, maps, artwork, music, speeches, poetry, political cartoons, and posters.  By thoroughly immersing yourself in the analysis of primary sources you better understand the people and their responses to events.
