        Andrew Carnegie | The Gilded Age (1870-1910) | U.S. History

        Scottish industrialist and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie (1835 - 1919). The son of a Dunfermline linen weaver, Carnegie emigrated to Pittsburgh in 1848. After the American Civil War (1861 - 1865) he moved into the production of iron and steel. Carnegie became one of the richest men of his day. A multi-millionaire, he retired to Skibo Castle in Sutherland and donated $350 million to many charities and over 1700 libraries in America and Britain. His name lives on in the Carnegie Institutes in Pittsburgh and Washington and in the famous Carnegie Hall in New York. (Photo by Ernest H. Mills/Getty Images)
