They Made America


This is the companion site to They Made America, the four-part public broadcasting series on looking at America through its innovators -- from the early days to today. From Alexander Graham Bell (telephone) to John Wanamaker (department store) and from Ted Turner (CNN) to Fred Smith (FedEx), this site explores the stories of people who took a chance and changed the course of our country.
