Cinematic recreations and expert commentary reveal the story behind the Erie War. In 1868, America and #39;s first titan, Cornelius Vanderbilt, and maverick stock broker Daniel Drew battle for control of the Erie Railroad. Drew, with help from Jay Gould and James Fisk, manipulate the stock market to prevent Vanderbilt and #39;s hostile takeover of the Erie Railroad. The ensuing financial scandal forced a reformation on Wall Street, and the effects can still be felt today.
