In the 1800s, January 8th Day parades commemorating the Battle of New Orleans were big events in the city of New Orleans. One of the popular attractions in the parade was Jordan Noble, an African American drummer who played his drum in three American wars, including serving under Gen. Andrew Jackson during the Battle of New Orleans. “Old Jordan,” as he was affectionately known, tells his story to young readers in this rhyming picture storybook.
The War of 1812 is frequently known as the Second War of Independence. The war proved to American citizens that they could hold their ground on land and sea against the combined British, Native American, and British Canadian forces. In preparation for the attack on New Orleans, Andrew Jackson arrived to build defenses and lead the disparate defenders: 4,700 men, including 462 free men of color, 52 Choctaw warriors, and the forces of notorious pirate and smuggler Jean Lafitte. The decisive victory in the Battle of New Orleans proved to the American people that the United States was military power with which to be reckoned.

When they agreed to spend Halloween night in the middle of a swamp, the boys of the Society of Sublime Scribblers thought they were in for a few scary stories, but they never expected to become part of one!

In her signature self-deprecating and hilarious style, humor essayist Rose Madeline Mula gripes about growing old.

In this collection of comical compositions, readers can skip around from one laugh-out-loud essay to the next while enjoying the author’s endless wit and charm.
