United States History: Primary Sources by Century: Primary sources

Find Primary sources

Looking for diaries, interviews or personal narratives?  Theresa Mudrock, the History Librarian at UW Seattle, has created a guide for identifying primary sources.

All Centuries

What's in the Guide - Primary Sources in U.S. History by Century

If you entered this guide from the main U.S. History Guide, you can click here to get back.

These pages contain most of the same links as are on the U.S. History Primary Sources by Type guide, but they are arranged by time period instead.
