Cornelius Vanderbilt grew up around New York Harbor, and watched ferry boats come and go every day. He dreamed one day of having his own ferry service where he could give rides to passengers. Little did young Cornelius know that, as an adult, he would end up owning huge steamships and building endless lines of railroad across the United States. In doing so, he made it easier for Americans to travel around the world and became one of the richest men in the entire world. In this biographical magazine, we cover his rise as one of the most important builders of the 19th century.
