What Is A Secondary Source?
Kansas Nebraska Act
This would be a primary source because this was the actual document signed in the Nebraska Act ( that is the most important part has to happen in that time period or written by someone who was there). It was not changed it was typed to see the words, because in the original document the words were hard to read.
This would be a secondary source because this was written to explain what happened in the Nebraska Act. It says on the site that it was written in 1996 making it not a primary source because that is far from the original time period making it invalid as a primary source but a valuable and understandable secondary source.
