Official Site:

Meet the wealthy elite of the Gilded Age — and the struggling workers who challenged them.

THE GILDED AGE presents a compelling and complex story of one of the most convulsive and transformative eras in American history. In the closing decades of the nineteenth century, the U.S. population doubled in the span of a single generation, national wealth expanded, and two classes rose simultaneously, separated by a gulf of experience and circumstance that was unprecedented in American life.
