Primary Sources

September 28, 2007

An interesting story about a allegedly false 9/11 survivor that connects directly into our discussion of how reliable primary sources are…

Here’s something to think about (assuming the NY Times article is accurate): the disclosure that she was an imposter won’t be added back to all the newspaper articles about her in the first place. What happens when a historian, hundreds of years later, does some research on 9/11 and comes upon her story, but NOT the NY Times article?
