  • The Story Of American History

    Albert F. Blaisdell, Ginn and Company

    language (Jazzybee Verlag, July 21, 2012)
    Some sort of a first book on American history is now quite generally used in schools as a preparation for the more intelligent study of a larger and more formal text-book in the higher grammar grades.For beginners, a mere compilation of facts is dry and unsatisfactory. Such books have now given place, for the most part, to those prepared on a more attractive and judicious plan. The real aim in a first book should be to interest boys and girls in the history of their country, and to encourage them to cultivate a taste for further study and reading.This book is intended for use in the earlier grammar grades and to be preliminary to the study of a more advanced work in the higher grades. The author has also kept in mind the fact that the school life of many children is brief, and that all their instruction in American history must come from a text-book of this kind.Contents:Preface.Chapter I. America In The Old Days.Chapter II. Columbus And The Discovery Of America.Chapter III. Sir Walter Raleigh And Captain John Smith.Chapter IV. The Story Of The Pilgrims.Chapter V. More About The Pilgrims.Chapter VI. The Indians And How They Lived.Chapter VII. The Dutch In New York; The Quakers In Pennsylvania.Chapter VIII. The French And Indian Wars.Chapter IX. Everyday Life In Colonial Times.Chapter X. The Beginning Of The Revolution.Chapter XI. Lexington And Concord.Chapter XII. The Battle Of Bunker Hill.Chapter XIII. The Declaration Of Independence.Chapter XIV. The Burgoyne Campaign.Chapter XV. Washington And The Revolution.Chapter XVI. The War Of The Revolution In The South.Chapter XVII. The Story Of Arnold's Treason.Chapter XVIII. John Paul Jones: Our First Great Naval Hero.Chapter XIX. Benjamin Franklin: His Highly Useful Career.Chapter XX.

  • The Story of American History

    Albert F. Blaisdell

    language (Didactic Press, Jan. 5, 2015)
    The author has not aimed to cover the whole range of our country's history. Of many noted men and important affairs no mention is made. Only the leading events of certain periods and the personal achievements of a few representative "makers of our country" are treated in any detail. The subject is approached through biographical sketches of a few of the more illustrious actors in our nation's history. Some prominence is given to exceptional deeds of valor, details of everyday living in olden times, dramatic episodes, and personal incident...

  • The History of American Pop

    Stuart A. Kallen

    eBook (Lucent Books Inc, May 9, 2012)
    This popular Lucent Books series has been updated to make music of all genres even more accessible, popular and culturally relevant in the 21st century; the set focuses on the history, music, musicians, and instruments behind specific musical styles.; For many people, popular music provides a soundtrack to their lives by entwining emotion with experience. It is little wonder, then, that eventful periods in American history are often defined by the pop music of the time. For example, big band jazz evokes memories of World War II for those who lived through that era, while songs from the 1960s often remind baby boomers of the drug-fueled hippie revolution. In this new addition to the Music Library, author Stuart Kallen traces the history of popular music in America from the sounds of Tin Pan Alley to Chicago jazz clubs, to southern rock nā€™ roll and country, to the British Invasion, to psychedelic rock and Woodstock, to garage band heroes and music video rock stars, to hip-hop tycoons and young American idols.; This new edition of the popular Lucent Books series has been updated to make music of all genres even more accessible, popular and culturally relevant in the 21st century. The set focuses on the history, music, musicians, and instruments behind specific musical styles -- from blues to indie rock to rap and more. It also addresses music videos, the advent of digital music stores and new portable digital delivery systems. Each title provides a historical overview of the development of a specific music genre; explores the roots and influences of the genre and the key components that are definitive of the style; discusses the pioneers of the music; and considers the changes the genre has undergone from its inception to its present status on the world scene. Informative sidebars, a glossary of music terms, a selective discography, an annotated bibliography, and a subject index provide readers with additional tools for discussion and research.
