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.

This series tells the story of the post Civil War financial-industrial giants. I had previously thought of them as separate stories, but this series makes it one flowing story bringing out the tight connections between them as first one, then the next, by virtue of innovative thinking, supersedes the prior titan. Though there are obvious breaks for advertisements in this made for TV series, and though the summaries are at times very repetitive, they DO serve to reminder the viewer of the overarching story.
