CC's Proquest Historical Newspapers were selected for geographical representation: East Coast, West Coast, Midwest and South. You may search each paper individually or in any combination. You can also search these newspapers with American Periodicals Series.
Use sources only if primary. For example, works written by an eyewitness, or a reprinted speech; not an overview or second-hand account. Ask if you need help determining if a source qualifies as primary in relation to your topic.
