Is rebar made out of steel, and if so, how is it on carbon?

I'm going to build a forge, and thusly need a scource of steel to work. Rebar would be great, but I don't know what it's made of. Is it steel? If it is, is it a high carbon steel?

Rebar is mostly of iron, with some carbon content, thus making it a type of steel. It's not what I'd call high-carbon though. If you know what grade of steel you want you can go looking for it, but know what you want to make first. L

"It is usually formed from carbon steel"
