For my documents, I tried to pick a variety of sources from different viewpoints. The National Security Archive was essential to my search, as they have been leaders in securing information about the brutal Civil War. However, most of these sources are from American perspectives. So while I made sure to include different kinds of sources from various departments and agencies, I also made sure to include sources from Latin America. Taken together, they show the development of the Civil War from the perspectives of both outsiders and insiders.
