For primary and secondary sources, mostly secondary...

JURN : search millions of free academic articles, chapters, and theses

Developed by hand over a period of five years, JURN only searches fulltext academic content that is free and open. No paywalls, 99.8% of the time.

JURN does need a little care in forming the search terms and phrases. You can't just stab at it with two keywords and expect wonders in return. Although try the search: | what is history carr | to see how good Google (which is powering JURN) can be at guessing what you want. As search modifiers you can use:

intitle:keyword "key phrase"

inurl:keyword "key phrase"

site:www.yoursite.com keyword "key phrase"

1848..1914 "key phrase" (find only documents that have dates within that range)

JURN also has a huge up-to-date and linkrot-free directory of open ejournals in history and related subjects: JURN : the directory of scholarly ejournals in the arts & humanities

This is spectacular stuff, gentlemen, I really don't know how to thank you - but I do. Jurn, I feel like a kid in a candy store. Thank you, and thank you both, and thank you all... My father used to say that real class had two main components, you could have class, he'd say, with lots of other stuff kicked in, but without these two items the rest really amounted to a bunch of nada.

Compassion and discretion.

Thank you for your compassion.

I'm really surprised that the OP hasn't been updated with all the links.. It would be really helpful if they were all in one place.

Google Books are very good way to start research.
