Americans conquer a new frontier the modern city with Carnegie's empire of steel as its backbone. Skyscrapers and the Statue of Liberty are symbols of the American dream for millions of immigrants. The discovery of oil is a boom to industry; Henry Ford puts America on the road. Urban life introduces a new breed of social ills while prohibition fuels the growth of organized crime. It could be said that America was invented not discovered. AMERICA THE STORY OF US looks at history from an entirely new viewpoint with untold stories about the men and women - both famous figures and everyday people - who pushed innovation and ingenuity to the very edge of possibility to create a modern world that was unthinkable at its founding. From the taming of the west to the building of our great cities to the conflict that united and divided a nation AMERICA THE STORY OF US immerses viewers in each moment as it happens.
