Primary sources are materials that provide a historical record for the way life was in the past or how a particular event or movement came to be and unfolded. Sources include first-hand accounts such as those found in diaries, memoirs, letters and newspaper articles. Other important sources are records of government proceedings. See the History guide for more information.
