Why I Read This Book: I've heard the telegraph called "The Victorian Internet", so I wanted to learn a little more about it. This is a brief and highly entertaining history of Samuel Morse's development of the telegraph and the Morse code. It does a good job of capturing the pain of living in the pre-telegraph era, when life, death, and war were harmed by the lack of fast communications. It talks (briefly) about some of the technical issues, and Morse's rivals.

In Paris, Morse met Daguerre, the celebrated Frenchman who had discovered a process of making pictures by sunlight, and Daguerre had given Samuel Morse the secret. This led to the first pictures taken by sunlight in the United States and to the first photographs of the human face taken anywhere. Daguerre had never attempted to photograph living objects and did not think it could be done, as a rigidity of position was required for a long exposure.

OK but missing the telegraph's first use coast to coast at Utah Transcontinental Rail Ceremony May 10 1869.
Also more about American Experience implementing this invention, such as the Native Americans reaction cutting the wires and using copper for jewelry or the fact that laying the wires across territories actually made the railroad and major routes today connect. And the beginning of the 'stock broker' was really the telegraph worker tracking the lines....

So the impact on the country as a megatechnology was understated. The first telegraph coast to coast to Washington DC from Utah and to San Francisco from Utah united the country EAST TO WEST at a time when NORTH TO SOUTH post civil war was weak and divided.

Too much color on every page also need some white space to get through it. Lots of great content nonetheless as an invention.

Art and science are much more connected in makerspaces these days, and the architecture layout of what the telegraph must have required, the challenges, and push to do this from Lincoln carried thru after his death.

The contribution to the industrial revolution in finance and industry very understated. Also the required materials - copper- came from Great Lakes and that is forgotten too how that was center of universe for the early American entrepreneur.

I bought this for my child's elementary school presentation. It was written in a way that kept him interested while giving enough facts for a great presentation. He scored well, enjoyed reading it and learned a lot. In the age of text messaging and constant communication I feel like Samuel Morse should be more of a household name. Highly recommended.

My boys, ages 8 and 10, love reading about historical events with these books, which are more like graphic novels (comic books). The book manages to include all the important facts in a fun and entertaining way.

They would be great if we were school kids in about 4th or 5th grade> I personally did not need all that information at 77 yes of age, if I would have known it was a comic book I would not have order it.

This is a history of Samuel Morse and the telegraph. It is presented as a graphic comic- which is great for the younger set! Kept my 9 year old son's attention- as we are working on his Science Fair project- and he was able to process the information in this book and understand it.
