Industrialist Andrew Carnegie achieved great financial success in the steel industry in nineteenth-century America. An immigrant from Scotland, Carnegie came to America as a boy and worked hard to become one of the wealthiest men in the world. After retiring from the steel industry, he gave his fortune away, believing the wealthy had an obligation to those less fortunate. Students will follow Carnegie's rags-to-riches story, learning about the industrialization of America and Carnegie's most influential works and achievements. They will also learn of Carnegie's business strategies, how he overcame obstacles and criticism, and his philanthropic work that continues through many institutes and organizations today.
