Item Description...
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 Battle of New Orleans: The Drummer's Story" explains the important role that a drummer played during wartime. Beating his drum over the din of battle, his rhythms served to inspire and unify the soldiers. This perspective of what some might consider a minor role makes this picture book a unique testament to wartime heroes of all kinds.

A glossary of terms is included in the back of the book, defining words like "artillery," "reveille," and "Congo Square," a public square in New Orleans where African slaves and free people of color gathered on Sunday afternoons to play musical instruments, sing, and dance.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Emile Henriquez's sharply detailed bright colored illustrations and rhyming couplets tell the story of Jordan B. Noble or "Old Jordan" as he was known.

"Old Jordan, Old Jordan,' his name rang in the air.
He was the crowd's favorite; no one could compare."

The crowd refers to the many people who gathered in the 1800s for the January 8th Day parades commemorating the Battle of New Orleans. At that time, those were among the biggest events in New Orleans, and Jordan was beloved by all.

Although he was then an old man he continued to march in the parades beating his drum. Old Jordan had quite a history - he served in four American wars, and as a youth was Andrew Jackson's drummer.

In this tribute to a man and a city's history, a young boy follows Old Jordan in the parade and listens as the drummer recounts his adventures and the importance of a drummer during wartime.

A glossary is included with definitions of terms used in the story, such as `cotton bales' and `dragoons.'

Highly recommended for ages 5 - 8.
