About This Book
On a peaceful Sunday morning in December 1941, the crews of ninety-four American warships anchored at a naval base in Hawaii were having breakfast and getting ready for church. In a matter of minutes, ships were sinking and burning and men were dying. Caught completely unaware by a Japanese attack, America was thrust into World War II!
Dramatic and defining moments in American history — from colonial times to the present day — come vividly to life in Cornerstones of Freedom, Second Series. A natural extension of the acclaimed original series, the second series returns its focus to the United States with more of what middle-grade teachers and students are looking for to support history, social studies, and geography curricula.
Authoritative and up-to-date, Cornerstones of Freedom, Second Series is an exceptional and indispensable resource for middle-grade readers.
