The Men Who Built AmericaHDTV-PG

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Carnegie, Astor, Ford and Morgan. Their names are part of history and synonymous with the American dream. These men transformed every industry they touched: oil, rail, steel, shipping, automobiles, and finance. Their efforts transformed a country. Rising from poverty, their paths crossed repeatedly as they elected presidents, set economic policies and influenced major events of their day - from the Civil War to The Great Depression. 12 million historical negatives, many made available for the first time by the Library of Congress, are brought to life to offer an unprecedented view of America's Industrial Age – and the men who built it.

Too much repitition

While I like the production amd entertainment factor and light hollywood approach to history I don't appreciate the History channel's continuos repeating of scenes. After every commercial break we get about 2 minutes of recap of the storyline and we end up with maybe 30 minutes or so of original story. Most of their programming has this annoying approach of fitting a 30 minute program into an hour slot.

Great depiction of Capitalism at its best!

Outstanding documentary. I am a teacher and will play this for our Big Business Unit. This will engage students in a different way with a well set up series.


This series should be shown in every classroom in America ... young people need to be inspired not discouraged ... and the fact that this is extremely visual will help hold their attention ... great performances, great cast, photography, and special effects ... I'm getting every episode ....
