Welcome to a collection of primary and secondary sources curated by Gibbs Smith Education. Here you will find key paintings, prints, drawings, documents, maps, charts, and diagrams to support US and state history instruction and additional social studies topics.

Note that most of the images are available in the public domain from sites such as the Library of Congress; however, some have been created and copyrighted at Gibbs Smith Education. While all images on the site are provided free of charge for everyday classroom use, rights to Gibbs Smith images are reserved. All images should be credited as indicated.

We ask you to keep in mind that this is a growing collection and that images of some key figures and events are not available in the public domain.
