Elizabeth, N. J., January, CONTENTS. CHAPTER I ORIGIN OF THE ELECTRIC CURRENT   The non-electric telegraph was invented by Claude Chappe in His system was visual and used semaphore, a flag-based alphabet, and depended on a line of sight for communication. The optical telegraph was later replaced by the electric telegraph, which is the focus of this : Mary Bellis.

An electrical telegraph was a point-to-point text messaging system, used from the s until better systems became widespread. It used coded pulses of electric current through dedicated wires to transmit information over long distances.

The history of electromagnetic theory begins with ancient measures to understand atmospheric electricity, in particular lightning. People then had little understanding of electricity, and were unable to explain the phenomena.

Scientific understanding into the nature of electricity grew throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries through the work of researchers such as Coulomb, Ampère.

It is certain that Joseph Henry was important to the history of the telegraph in two ways. First, he was responsible for major discoveries in electromagnetism, most significantly the means of constructing electromagnets that were powerful enough to transform electrical energy into useful mechanical work at a distance.

Much of Morse's telegraph did indeed rest upon Henry's discovery of the.this auction is for a custom made vintage telegraph key and sounder morse code practice set. the unit is self-contained with 2 "c" size batteries in an accessible battery compartment. the wiring circuit and 2 1/2" speaker are also enclosed in the sounder case.Electrical Telegraph is a device that uses electrical signals to instantaneously send and receive messages over great distances via telecommunication lines or radio.

The originator of this way of communication was electromagnetic telegraph from early years of the 19th century which enabled first transfer of coded messages between vast amounts of land.
