This document based question (DBQ) is designed to be a culminating activity to the series or to any lesson on the growth of big business. Great way to get students to process the information seen in the series "The Men Who Built America." You can find episode guides to the entire series here The Men Who Built American Complete Video Guides for Every Episode
The DBQ prompt and documents will help students explain the business tactics used by at least two of the titans of industry (Vanderbilt, J.P. Morgan, Andrew Carnegie, and J.D. Rockefeller) and the role politics/politicians played in limiting their unregulated power. I have also included a DBQ Essay Guide and Rubric for free!
