GRAND HAVEN, Mich. -- John D. Rockefeller, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford and J.P. Morgan rose from obscurity and in the process built modern America.

Their names hang on street signs, are etched into buildings and are a part of the fabric of history. These men created the American dream and were the engine of capitalism as they transformed everything they touched in building the oil, rail, steel, shipping, automobile and finance industries.

To learn how these men influenced America, the public is invited to the Loutit District Library (LDL) for four consecutive evenings beginning Monday, Jan. 20 and concluding Thursday, Jan. 23 to view the History Channel TV series The Men Who Built America. Two episodes of the series will show each night.

The Men Who Built America series is part of the library’s year-long centennial celebration. This free series of programs will be shown in the LDL's program room A at 6:30 p.m. For more information, visit www.loutitlibrary.org or call (616) 842-5560, ext. 214.
