SS8R: Robber Baron or Captains of Industry Project

posted by .

Create a PowerPoint about your Captains of Industry (min. 7 slides)

I chosen Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, and Cornelius Vanderbilt for me previous assignment (that's why I ask you those questions about them).

Now I have to choose ONE OF THEM to do my project.

In my project I have to answer the following questions:

• How did you Captain of Industry make his money
• At its large point, how large was your Captain's business (An example or monetary)
• How did he (or his industry) treat his (its) workers?
• How did he spend his money?
• What kind of humanitarian activities did he participate in? OR, how/where did he donate his money?
• In your opinion, is this person a Captain of Industry or a Robber Baron? Why do you feel this way?

The problem is that one of them could answer 2-3 questions above and some can't. Which person should I choose that could answer all the questions above.

    I think if we look hard enough we can find the answers to all of those questions about all of those men.
