You can read all the history books in the world, yet no matter how good they may be (and in U.S. K-12 schools they are often poor), there’s nothing like reading, viewing, and interpreting original historical sources (Primary Sources) for yourself. This campaign encouraged teachers to dig deeper into history by drawing on the vast archive of Primary Sources available free from The Smithsonian, to challenge their students to think rather than regurgitate, and to offer a far more exciting learning experience.
