Free Primary Sources: Home

Resource to help National History Day participants and other students locate primary sources.

What are primary sources?

Documents that were created at the time of the event or subject you’re studying or by people who were observers of or participants in that event or topic.

"What makes the source a "primary" source is when it was made, not what it is (Brown).”
