Andrew Carnegie (2:11)
Andrew Carnegie was an immigrant from Scotland, and worked as a child at a button factory and taught himself to be a telegraph operator. He realized that iron and steel were the future and so he started to build his empire in that area. This video is a brief biography, but does not tell about his harsh treatment of union workers and others. It does stress his donations, but does not tell about how he earned his money.
