Primary sources are first-hand accounts or products of historic events created by the people who lived through, witnessed, or were directly impacted by those events. These materials offer direct evidence of the past and have the power to help students learn about the people and events that shaped the American Revolution from those who experienced it first-hand.  

Educators participating in this free online workshop will examine diaries, letters, muster rolls, estate inventories, court records of people suing for their freedom, applications for military pensions, artwork, and objects. Together with a Museum educator, they will consider how to use them in the classroom to bring the American Revolution to life and discuss how their students can use historical thinking skills to better understand them.
