Primary Sources on the Web

A primary source is a document or object created during the time period being studied.  Primary source documents include eyewitness accounts, original recordings of speeches, news reports and newsreels, official government records, letters, interviews, etc. Use these primary sources to support your thesis.

Note: Many primary sources are curated on the web.  Be careful to differentiate between information drawn from the primary source, and information contained in the interpretations or summaries that often accompany or introduce the material.
