Episode Description:

Few substances have played a larger role or had more of an impact on the peoples of this planet than iron. From approximately 4000 B.C. until the commercialization of the Bessemer process of steel manufacture (1867), iron has been a constant and consistent element in the development of races, cultures, and nations.

The colonists arriving in North America constructed an iron furnace in Virginia as early as 1609, and by 1771, the colonies were producing iron at seventy-two blast furnaces. As the young nation grew and settlers pushed south and west across the mountains, the need for tools, nails, guns, wheels, kitchenware, and various equipment expanded the domestic market for iron products. Blast furnaces began to appear in the new states of Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky, and Tennessee.
