Register Now: Webinar Series – Rockefeller, Carnegie, & the Titans of Industry’s Impact on American Society

Beginning Oct. 12 through Nov. 9, the U.S. Capitol Historical Society is proud to present its annual symposium, this year online and focused on the Gilded Age. From the rise of titans of industry like John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie, to the impact of mass industrialization on the American workforce and economic inequality, explore how Congress reacted to this tumultuous era – and how we can still learn important lessons of the age.

Every Tuesday from 12-1 pm ET, this seminar will bring together panels of leading scholars who will discuss and debate the impact of the Gilded Age on our society. Like all USCHS public history programming, these events are free; registration is required.
