You will address this question by finding and analyzing a number of historical primary sources. This guide has been created to support your search for relevant primary sources through databases and open online archive repositories. Keep in mind that the documents should shape your argument, not the other way around. In other words, you should avoid the temptation to ONLY seek sources that support your thinking.
