It is 100 years since Scott Joplin published the Maple Leaf Rag with a small Missouri publishing company in 1899. Within a few years, it was the biggest-selling sheet music of its day -- eventually selling over one million copies and launching the ragtime era throughout America. Trace the Ragtime craze as it spread -- first in St. Louis, then through middle America (Chicago, Indianapolis); the South (New Orleans); the West (San Francisco); the Northeast (Boston); and finally to New York City.
