Could not stop watching these videos. These are not movies, these are hisory lessons we weren't taught in school.
I bought this DVD as a birthday gift for my husband. He enjoyed it a lot. We watch it every nightfor two weeks. It is a very education! Love it.
great watching but believe there should have been telephone in there too as it helped bringing all closer whether in town or across the country
More realistic way of how our great nation was built! Very exciting and has tons of information!
Well worth the history review!
I saw this on T.V. & had to buy it.....
The is a great story of how these men created, built and innovated industries. It is very educational and inspirational. I would recommend it to anyone who is trying to build anything in industry today.
I enjoyed the movie and great history and great back memories on how men started builting America.I would have my dad watch it.
I watched this myself on Netflix and knew I had to buy to share with my family. Great information and love the way they presented it.
This documentary focuses on five men: Vanderbilt, Rockefeller, Morgan, Carnegie, and Ford. Along with J.P. Morgan it gives great coverage of Edison (who did not develop the electricity that we use now but claimed credit for it). This DVD shows how they made/lost their fortunes and how they tried to outwit their competition and each other. It shows their ingenuity, egos, convictions, and cruelty in making money....and when money no longer was a concern, their drive to make them the best. This is not a boring history class.
I saw this on the history channel 2 years ago and decided to purchase the DVD I love how the program was narrated and illustrated it made the history lesson very exciting to learn and to watch the experience how people lived and how the industrial revolution boomed during the 19th century. I would definitely recommend this series.
It was exactly what I was looking for
This is an award winning video; history told in a dramatic and compelling manor. A must for all homes that are trying to shape young minds or entertain all adults.
The DVD was excellent. The combination of historic facts with the actors who portrayed these hallmarks of American innovation was done perfectly . I would definately recommend.
Very good quality documentary, it plays out like a movie. I watched it on TV and had to buy it to own it.
Didnt think I would enjoy watching but once I started watching it kept my attention.
I like the history the DVD shows us about not only the history of the times but the lives of the men who did built America.
It was perfect i place the order and within a few days it was at Walmart and thebest part of all is that because i had itdelivered to Walmart there was no shipping charge i will recommend that everyone go on line and order from Walmart
Very informative and insightful!
The beginning of the railroad, bridges and steel, and how this brought passage from East to West, no longer hindered by the Mighty Mississippi River. Amazing time peroid, and the great minds who brought fuel and electricity and automobile's which changed everything in such a short period of time. Really fascinating for those who have only known the modern age in which we now live.
