A Primary source for History would be an account from that time period. If you are writing about Lincoln's assassination a primary Source is the newspaper article on the event. A secondary source is anything written since then about the assassination. Simply put - If you tell me something then you are the PRIMARY SOURCE - if I then tell someone else I am THE SECONDARY SOURCE.
