An Example of a Primary Source
This is a third class ticket for the voyage of the Titanic.

Secondary Sources are sources that were produced after the event
took place. A textbook is a secondary source. A television show
about the Columbus journey is a secondary source. The movies "Titanic," "Pearl Harbor,"and "Schindler's List" are all secondary sources. Historians tend to
avoid secondary sources if possible. However, secondary sources
can be valuable. Secondary sources have their place in historical
study, just not every time.
Example of secondary source
A primary source is a document or object that was created or written during the time. The sources were there during a certain event and give an inside view on things.
