“The Men Who Built America”

Episode 2 – John Rockefeller

In today’s class, you’ll watch the second episode of “The Men Who Built America”.   This episode focuses on the business tactics of John Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Company.

Rockefeller is still considered “the wealthiest American ever”.  See this graphic for more info (New York Times, 2007).

While you watch the episode, you’ll take notes (on paper) of information that catches your attention or you find interesting.  After the episode is over, you’ll transfer your notes to a new blog post.
