Research two (2) of the following men to determine if you would consider each man to be simply a Captain of Industry or was he a Robber Baron, and explain why.
· Harvey Samuel Firestone
· Henry Morrison Flagler
· Henry Ford
· George Mortimer Pullman
· Gustavus Franklin Swift
Base your conclusions on these guidelines:
· Robber Barons used predatory practices to acquire wealth.
· How a man treated his employees does NOT qualify him as a robber Baron.
· What a man did with his money after he made it, should not be a consideration in determining his status.
