The Men Who Built America Release Date and Synopsis

Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Carnegie, Astor, Ford and Morgan. Their names are part of history and synonymous with the American dream. These men transformed every industry they touched: oil, rail, steel, shipping, automobiles, and finance. Their efforts transformed a country. Rising from poverty, their paths crossed repeatedly as they elected presidents, set economic policies and influenced major events of their day - from the Civil War to The Great Depression. 12 million historical negatives, many made available for the first time by the Library of Congress, are brought to life to offer an unprecedented view of America's Industrial Age – and the men who built it.

Inspiring!Great and very informative documentary without too much sensationalism. I only wish they’d adapt it for streaming and cut those recaps in the middle of each episode..Score: 5/5

Like a great mini seriesThis is perfect for any history buff. It's an excellent look into history. This series is proof that it is the people like Dagny Taggart and Howard Roarke make the world go round..Score: 5/5

Propaganda trashThis is a fantasy that erases the real builders of America: Native Americans, Blacks, poor white workers, Asians, and Latinos. Shame on the History (😒) channel.Score: 1/5

Nonstop information enjoyableI watched the series on History and was hooked from the beginning. I new base information about these leaders, but really learned far more from the series. Schools should be required to show this. Everyone felt real and was never a boring moment. I looked forward to each week. I will have too see about owning this..Score: 5/5

Highest RegardsOne of the finest non-fiction series I've seen in the last 10 years..Score: 5/5

Waiting for another seasonThere is so much more to tell, America is still rich in stories of innovation and how it changed the world. Lets get started on another season. We could do without the repetition though..Score: 4/5

BEST SERIES EVERThe Men Who Built America is like a big-budget hollywood movie. The story is thrilling and the characters larger-than-life. I learned so much! But the whole time it kept my attention in a vice grip. Awesome series! I wish every TV show was this good..Score: 5/5

Great contentI rated this 5 stars for the content. However, like other reviewers have said before, poor editing turns a 25 minute show into 45 minute show. Too many repeated scenes following (cut) commercials. I hope the studios will figure out this new model of production sooner rather than later. A Good deal of the Netflix TV series' suffer this same problem..Score: 5/5

Great!Yes, It does do a quick 2min recap a few times during each episode. It was made for TV and after a fade out and in where commercials once were it recaps. Every TV show does that. I hardly notice or care. Once and a while History Channel nails out a real goodie, and this is one of them. Very well done, acting is good and at a minimal with out the cheese of other reenactments. Content is strong and interesting. A real good buy i do not regret..Score: 5/5

GreatI felt like I went back to school great show....Score: 5/5
