This is Homestead, just one of Carnegies steel plants. Andrew Carnegie controlled the entire industry and almost everything associated with it. Some may think his control was completely unfair and wrong, but there werent any rules regulating how companies could be run. Carnegie saw this opportunity and built his company with it.

CARNEGIE GAVE AWAY SO MUCH MONEY ON ENSURING EDUCATION AND OUR FUTURE

Carnegie spent so much money on libraries and music halls and ensuring our future as successful Americans, rather than keeping it to himself.

This is Carnegie Hall, a grand palace of music made by the man himself.
