Product Overview

Cornerstones of Freedom, Second Series, is the updated and newly designed extension of the acclaimed original series. Focusing specifically on key events in American history, from colonial times to the present day, the Cornerstones books support history, social studies, and geography curricula for middle-school students. Each book includes expanded subject coverage, subheadings, informative sidebars, glossary terms, timelines, and additional resources, as well as an attractive new design and dramatic photographs. In 1900, Louis Armstrong was born to a teenage mother in a depressed part of New Orleans. Jazz was born at around the same time. From the moment Louis began playing the trumpet as a young boy, "it was hypnosis at first hearing," said another young musician. Louis would go on to become one of the major driving forces behind the development of jazz, one of America's most important native-born art forms. Elish describes the emergence of the Jazz Age in American society and Armstrong's role in its success.
