The American Industrial Revolution started with a bang and it grew with the westward expansion of the United States. After the Civil War slowed things down, it took the sheer entrepreneurial will of 4 men to get things moving again. In this episode of History and the Highway, host Stan Ellsworth delves into the lives of Cornelius Vanderbilt, Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, and John P Morgan whose determination and drive took industry to new heights and who all left their mark on American commerce and corporations.
