Primary Sources---The IFs, ANDs, and BUTs!
What Are Primary Sources?
Primary sources consist of firsthand accounts/event recordings, artistic representations of events, and original research, studies, schematics, and data. These may be created simultaneous to an event or recorded later (interviews, diaries, memoirs, art).
Visual materials, such as photos, original artwork, posters, and films, are important primary sources, not only for the factual information they may offer, but also for the insight into historial views.
