Fight breaks out:
Andrew Carnegie went on a trip and left Henry Frick in charge of the factory. He locked all of the workers out and the workers tried to get in so Henry Frick called in the pinkertons to fight the workers off, and this conflict left at least 10 people dead.
Andrew Carnegie sold his steel company to a man named J.P. Morgan for 480 million dollars. He donated 380 million dollars to charity in the last 18 years of his life.
Andrew Carnegie changed the world because now we can build stronger buildings and we have better knowledge and we can even make our own steel now!
