The Men Who Built America - Series Premiere
Tue., Oct. 16 at 9/8c
John D. Rockefeller, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford and J.P. Morgan rose from obscurity and in the process built modern America. Their names hang on street signs, are etched into buildings and are a part of the fabric of history. These men created the American Dream and were the engine of capitalism as they transformed everything they touched in building the oil, rail, steel, shipping, automobile and finance industries. Their paths crossed repeatedly as they elected presidents, set economic policies and influenced major events of the 50 most formative years this country has ever known. From the Civil War to the Great Depression and World War I, they led the way.
Using state of the art computer generated imagery that incorporates 12 million historical negatives, many made available for the first time by the Library of Congress, this series will bring back to life the world they knew and the one they created. The event series will show how these men took a failed experiment in democracy and created the greatest superpower the world has ever seen. We see how their historic achievements came to create the America of today.
Thanks for posting but, “You didn’t build that”.
the world according to dear leader BUMP!
The Men Who Built America - How We Hunted Their Ice Trucking Ghosts That Were Pawning Their Modern Marvels
You said it. My God! The LEARNING channel, The DISCOVERY channel, The HISTORY channel. The never ending river of trash on these channels.
I saw the promo on TV last night. I thought to myself; “What? Are they kidding me? They’re going to showcase a bunch of rich white men? How totally unPC.”
They didn’t build that! Obama did.
God forbid we actually see how men literally built industrial empires from nothing except an idea. Expect the “you didn’t build that, the banks did” crowd to show up soon to rain on your parade. The concept of self made independent men are lost on them.
You didnt build that.
If you believe that, thank a teacher!
[A public service announcement from the NEA!]
Grow it, mine it, build it! The rest is female dominated service economy fluff and Gov’t parasites that live off the real producers of America
Grow it, mine it, build it! -— China still knows this. So does South Korea, Japan and Taiwan
I am looking forward to seeing some white boy robber barons swinging into action
On a similar note, I would like to commend UPS’ latest commercials for pointing out that small business people created their own success, with some help from UPS. The commercials seem to be a smack back at Obama’s “You didn’t build this” lie.
I don’t know.
Watch and see if they don’t focus on Henry Ford’s anti-Semitism. Or Morgan’s racist views. Junk like that.
I’d rather they focus on the tax shelter socialist foundations these men established.
