Plot
The Brooklyn Bridge was not only a landmark, but also the first bridge of its kind. No one had ever used steel for construction, nor used cables of metal, nor built a suspension bridge so long. Until one man dared to try.

In 19th-century New York, where buildings were no more than five stories tall, engineer John Roebling’s soaring and majestic Brooklyn Bridge was nothing short of a technological miracle. But Roebling's innovation led to an uphill battle against the elements, corrupt politicians, and scientists who claimed the first strong wind would collapse the bridge to rubble.

The History Channel® presents the thrilling and comprehensive story of ""the eighth wonder of the world."" Witness moving firsthand accounts, interviews with experts, and extensive footage that explores the many trials and disasters that plagued Roebling's masterpiece-and ultimately cost him his life.
