For this assignment, you need to visit the National Archives Experience.
Historians typically use two types of materials: primary sources and
secondary sources. Secondary sources are typically books and articles
written on a particular historical event well after the fact. Primary
source documents are usually generated by first-hand participants or by
people who were alive at the time of particular events. Good historians
rely heavily on original materials created at the time of the event. For
this reason, historians spend a good deal of time in archives. There
are many types of archives, but by far, the largest in the United States
is the National Archives in Washington, D.C.
National Archives contains more than 10 billion documents, and they
have collected over 1,200 of those in the National Archives Experience.
