Over the years, various titles have been given to the inventors, innovators, and businessmen at the heart of America’s Industrial Revolution, i.e., “Robber Barons,” “Captains of Industry,” “Evil Capitalists,” “Men of Vision.” In addition to Carnegie, name two other “Titans of Industry” discussed in the film and/or discussed in the Lectures or your Textbook and summarize the good, the bad, and the ugly about them and their contributions to America’s Industrial Revolution and the quality of our lives today. Write one paragraph for each of these 3 men, answering the parameters listed above.
***I recommend you write your essay FIRST on a word processing program and either copy and paste it into the submission window OR upload your saved file instead. Either option is okay with me.
DO NOT FORGET TO FINISH YOUR ENTRY WITH A STUDY QUESTION OF YOUR OWN .

She wants all sources used and quoted. I believe there is a total of 3 sources that need to be used, the documentary, lecture video, and powerpoint. I need it within 8 hours or so whatever time you place, it has to be done in 8 hours
