Teaching with Primary Sources--the American Memory from the Library of Congress

Library of Congress--American Memory

There are 18 categories of Americana, from advertising to women's history. They contain some or all of the following: "written and spoken words, sound recordings, still and moving images, prints, maps, and sheet music.  These materials chronicle historical events, people, places, and ideas that continue to shape America."

Listen to slave narratives or the speeches of President Theodore Roosevelt, view WPA posters from 1936 to 1943 or Edward S. Curtis's portfolio plates or illustrations of Native Americans circa 1907-1930. And much more.
