Summary
This film celebrates steel, the metal that built modern America{u2014}from small, early ironworks in colonial Massachusetts to massive mills in Pittsburgh. Viewers learn about Andrew Carnegie{u2019}s opportunism, timing, and business talent that led him to enter the post-Civil War iron industry. He soon adopted the Bessemer process to supply steel to buildings and railroads across the nation during the Gilded Age{u2014}becoming the richest man in America. J.P. Morgan convinced him to merge with eleven other steel companies to create U.S. Steel, headquartered in Gary, Indiana and provide materials to automobile and wartime manufacturers. After World War II, the industry was forced to downsize due to foreign competition, teaching other sectors a valuable lesson in globalization
