This publication is intended for teachers bringing a class to visit the National Archives in Washington, D.C., for a workshop on primary documents. The National Archives serves as the repository for all federal records of enduring value. Primary sources are vital teaching tools because they actively engage the student's imagination so that he or she may visualize past events and make sense of their reality and meaning. This publication concerns a workshop on the U.S. Civil War. Background information on two documents, The Emancipation Proclamation and an engraving of the Battle between the Monitor and the Merrimac, which are part of the workshop and are included. Photographs of the documents and student exercises also are included. (DB)
