Cornelius Vanderbilt, John D. Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, J.P. Morgan, Henry Ford. Their names are synonymous with innovation, big business and the American Dream. They built empires. They created incredible advances in technology. They changed the world.
HISTORY chronicles the lives of these visionary men in THE MEN WHO BUILT AMERICA, an eight-hour event series premiering Tuesday, October 16 at 9 p.m. on HISTORY Channel.
THE MEN WHO BUILT AMERICA chronicles how these five self-made men shaped the future of this country, transforming the U.S. into a global superpower in a span of just 50 years, and how they affected the lives of every person in the world.
Vanderbilt was one of the first to see how railroads could change how goods are shipped, creating the model for our modern railroads. Carnegie created the process for mass-producing steel, which allowed large buildings to become a reality. Rockefeller discovered a way to refine oil that set the worldwide standard. Morgan created the modern financial system. Ford made the car accessible to the masses.

Oh my. A series that actually celebrates capitalists.
Henry Ford was, by far, a visionary on the level of Ben Franklin.
Looking forward to it.
Sadly, in today’s times, these same visionaries would be vilified.
Any wonder why we’re lacking in new risk takers like these men?
Granted. However, you will see freed blacks, Irishmen, Chinese ‘coolies’, Swedes, et al as the NPR/History channel’s vision of who built this country. They will all shown to be oppressed by the evil White Capitalist.
Can you imagine the Occupadoes meeting one of these men?
Nonsense. We all know that Harriet Tubman built America.
Followed, no doubt, by a rebuttal from Obama:
“THEY DIDN’T BUILD THAT!”
What a change from the current programming of Hog Men, Bog Men, Log Men, Alien Astronauts, Alien Pawn Stars, Alien Dumpster Divers, and all those other inspiring true tales of history.
All of them pawnshop owners, pickers, restorers, truck drivers or gator hunters no doubt.
I have a feeling they will be portrayed as rapers and pillagers of goddess Gaia who contributed to deforestation and global climate change.
Do you actually think this proven leftist branch of the MSM is going to NOT trash capitalism
Did you see their last POS. “America: the story of us”?
Expect it as an October surprise for the regime
I'm shocked too. You either get some insipid reality show or if they get remotely close to history, its to do one of two things: (1) to either claim that ancient civilizations were visited by aliens or (2) to "prove" that Christ was a mortal man and that the early Christian church was very intolerant.
Alien Dumpster Divers. Obama?
Don’t count on it being much celebration. From the trailer on last couple of days they are going to be ruthless Bad Guys.
Can soneone tell me WHAT HAPPENED to the “History Channel”?
I guess it isn’t the “Hitler Channel” anymore.
You Didn’t Build That! - DJ Obama (Music Video)
Capitalists Are Evil - another Obama campaign ad
Well that would be FDR, with a little help from LBJ.
They “built that”.
