Secondary sources are the best place to start in researching your topic. Secondary sources will give you a general overview of the topic, provide differing interpretations of the person, event or idea, and also lead you to essential primary sources. Take a look at reference books, history text books, general historical works, journal articles, newspaper and magazines, and internet sites in order to gain a decent background on your topic and also point yourself toward primary sources.
