    This genius with a trumpet did not invent jazz, as some have said, but when he got through with it, America’s homegrown art form was changed almost beyond recognition.

    The singer and dancer George M. Cohan claimed he was born on the 4th of July. His song "Yankee Doodle Dandy" (made more famous by Jimmy Cagney who played and sang and danced as Cohan in the movie) has the line "Born on the 4th of July (referring to Yankee Doodle or the USA). Actually, according to wiki, he was born on July 3rd. Of course that was most probably the 4th of July in Australia.
