Secondary Source - Defined

A Secondary source is defined as:  A source that discusses a prior event from an academic or research or layperson perspective.  The key here is that the resource is from some time after the event.  An example of this would be a book about the American Civil War or an article in a journal publication discussing the importance of the Battle of Gettysburg.  A book will NOT typically be a primary resource unless it is a compilation of letters or diary entries or documents.
