Section outline

  • As our examination of Industrialization in America continues, this week we take a close look at notorious industrialists like John D. Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, Cornelius Vanderbilt, and J.P. Morgan. After learning about who they were and what they did, the question will be posed as to whether such men were benefactors of society or parasites, growing rich at the expense of the common man?

    Assignments for this week are simple.
    1) Continue working on the "Growth of Industry packets
    2) You need to have all the lecture notes for Industrialization in America completed.

    Notebooks will be collected at the end of the week.
