It seemed that nothing could slow J.P. Morgan's drive to power, but in 1901, a bullet put an end to the business-friendly presidency of William McKinley. A new chief executive bounded into office: Theodore Roosevelt, who was sure that the government had to check the influence of the wealthy.

With winter bearing down and revolution in the air, it was a crisis that neither man alone could solve.
