Cornerstones of Freedom

  

Cornerstones of Freedom books have been published almost continuously for nearly 50 years. They are slim, well-illustrated books, each about 32 pages. They are very popular among homeschooling families who are looking for brief overviews of important historical events for ages 8-11, and are among the very few children's books to adequately cover historical events since 1980. 

These books are still being published, with new titles added regularly. Over the years, some titles have been reissued with new text by new authors. The original books were issued in four cover formats, at various times--

My list here includes only the titles issued during the first 20 years of publication, each with its original issue date. The series has grown and expanded since then and continues to change. This list is by no means complete to the current day.
