The Men who built America...


An intriguing show (of which I've had the misfortune of missing the first episode) is being shown on the History Channel (in the US).  Titled "The Men Who Built America", it delves into the lives of the capitalists who were the catalysts of the Gilded Age.  It covers the Mr. John Rockefeller, Mr. Cornelius Vanderbilt, Mr. Henry Ford, and Mr. J.P. Morgan, as they establish their economic empires.  Fortunatly, the first episode is located on their website (but alas, not embedable), so to see the first episode (titled "A New War Begins"), please head to the History Channel's dedicated web page regarding the show, at: http://www.history.com/shows/men-who-built-america
