Elected to the presidency in 1976 as an outsider who promised to transform the nation’s cynicism towards Beltway politics, Jimmy Carter served a tumultuous single term in the nation’s highest office. This “American Experience” program traces Carter’s fascinating political career from his modest beginnings in Plains, Georgia, to the deeply religious leader’s tenure as the 39th President of the United States.

American History-Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire–Videos

“…In the early 1900’s, young women shirtwaist makers – mostly Jewish immigrants, still in their teens –were a powerful force for change. They brought together women’s rights activism and union power, and ignited sweeping changes to worker safety laws.

On Saturday, March 25, 1911, a fire broke out on the top floors of the Triangle shirtwaist factory. Firemen arrived at the scene, but their ladders weren’t tall enough to reach the upper floors of the 10-story building, so workers trapped inside jumped to their deaths. In a half hour, the fire was over, and 146 of the 500 workers — mostly young women — were dead.

Many of us have read about the tragic Triangle fire in school textbooks. But the fire alone wasn’t what made the shirtwaist makers such a focal point for worker safety. In fact, workplace deaths weren’t uncommon then. It is estimated that over 100 workers died every day on the job around 1911.

The shirtwaist makers’ story was so compelling because of the events leading up to the fire. After the fire, their story inspired hundreds of activists across the state and the nation to push for fundamental reforms. For some, like Frances Perkins, who stood helpless watching the factory burn, the tragedy inspired a lifetime of advocacy for workers’ rights. She later became Secretary of Labor under President Franklin D. Roosevelt. …”

The Triangle Fire

It was the worst factory fire in the history of New York City. Late in the afternoon of Saturday, 25 March 1911, fire broke out at the Triangle Shirtwaist Company, located on the 8th, 9th, and 10th floors of the Asch Building. In less than five minutes fire snuffed out the lives of 146 workers.

Transcontinental Railroad (1 of 5)

By the middle of the 19th century, the benefits brought by the host of advances of the industrial age were gradually beginning to reach America, which soon developed a spectacular achievement of its own – the Transcontinental Railway, reaching right across the continent. They battled against hostile terrain, hostile inhabitants, civil war and the Wild West. With two teams, one building from the east and the other from California in the west, they battled against hostile terrain, hostile inhabitants, civil war and the Wild West. Yet in 1869, the two teams’ tracks were joined, shrinking the whole American continent, as the journey from New York to San Francisco was reduced from months to days.

Myths About the Transcontinental Railroad and the Building of the American West
Richard White, Professor of History, Stanford University; Author, Railroaded: The Transcontinentals and the Making of Modern America

Drawing on his extensive knowledge on the American West and 12 years of research on the railroads, White will reveal the social and economic impact the transcontinental railroad has had on shaping the United States into what it is today. With an iconoclastic perspective, White recasts our understanding of the Gilded Age. Hop aboard as White explores 19th-century politics, greed, corruption, money, and corporate arrogance — and the America formed out of them after the Civil War.
