Primary source documents are some of the best resources that we have to understand the people, societies, and cultures of the past. This series introduces young readers to the importance of primary sources, illustrating how we can analyze them, what kinds of unique information we can glean from them, and demonstrating the immersive experience of history they can provide. Focusing on a single primary source document, each title will explore the historical events that gave rise to said document, explain exactly what is being said, and describe how the document affected the historical landscape.
