This visually rich 20 slide powerpoint covers the major American "robber barons" of the Gilded Age: Rockefeller, Carnegie, Morgan, & Vanderbilt. It features spectacular photos of some of their mansions and political cartoons that highlight the public perception of their tactics.
The notes cover basic, essential Common Core information students need to know about each one. Your students will marvel at the Biltmore estate, gasp at JP Morgan's rhinophyma, and easily understand the relationship of cheap, immigrant labor to the rise of monopolies.
