Hipp vs outside evidence

what’s the difference between historical context and outside evidence?

Historical context explains what is happening before, at the same time as, or after the event or process that is mentioned in the DBQ prompt. Outside evidence is evidence that is not mentioned in the prompt or documents that you believe relates well to the topic at hand and would contribute to your argument.
