 How Do I Analyze a Primary Source?

 How Do I Analyze a Primary Source?.

For this assignment, you will need to analyze a primary source from United States History produced within the time frame of the 1860s through the 1960s. Please note that I will not accept any primary source that is not of the United States and/or falls out of the specified time frame.

Two resources for finding primary sources are the Library of Congress  (Links to an external site.)(LOC) and the National Archives  (Links to an external site.)(NARA). Each website has vast archives of primary sources for you to choose one of your personal interests for this assignment.
