In 1864, the open-hearth process was developed and the modern age of steel began. In 1865, the first short stretch of pipeline destined to fuel a parade of twenty million motor cars was laid in the valley of the Allegheny River. And in 1869, two sawed-off locomotives faced each other on a ridge in Utah while the nation waited, the last spike was driven, and word went forth by telegraph that a continent has been spanned with iron rails. Steel, oil and transportation: these were the giants who set the stage for Henry Ford. Illustrated.
