PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a 17 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Industrialization & Urbanization - Jim Fisk. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

Jim Fisk was a businessman who became nationally famous for unethical business practices on Wall Street in the late 1860s. He became a partner of the notorious robber baron Jay Gould in the Erie Railroad War of 1867-68, and he and Gould caused a financial panic with their scheme to corner the gold market in 1869.

Fisk was a heavyset man with a handlebar mustache and a reputation for wild living. Dubbed “Jubilee Jim,” he was the opposite of his sullen and secretive partner Gould. Fisk reached the zenith of his fame when his scandalous involvement with an actress, Josie Mansfield, played out on the front pages of the newspapers.

At the height of the scandal, in January 1872, Fisk visited a hotel in Manhattan and was gunned down by Richard Stokes, an associate of Josie Mansfield. Fisk died hours later. He was 37 years old.
