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. "Historical Sketch of the Electric Telegraph, Including Its Rise and Progress in the United States," by Alexander Jones, George P.

Putnam, New York, This page paperback provides a summary of the early days of the electric s: 1. All of the early books on telegraphy take extreme pains to make these facts clear. The electromagnet, which can attract a soft iron armature when energized, and release it quickly when the current stops, is the essential element of the electromagnetic telegraph.

Arago noted that electric currents made nearby iron needles magnetic in The electric telegraph did not burst suddenly upon the scene but rather resulted from a scientific evolution that had been taking place since the 18th century in the field of electricity.

One of the key developments was the invention of the voltaic cell in by Alessandro Volta of Italy. In fact the two main phases of telegraph development - cable-based techniques that began in the early 19th Century and wireless transmission in the 20th Century - parallel the changes in voice and information communications seen y of Telegraphy relates many of the discoveries and the ingenuity of the experimenters and engineers Reviews: 1.

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.

It was the first electrical telecommunications system, the most widely used of a number of early messaging systems called telegraphs, devised to send text. Inventor Samuel Morse developed the telegraph system. Morse's system sent out a signal in a series of dots and dashes, each combination representing one letter of the alphabet (“Morse code”).

The inventor submitted a patent for his device, which he called “The American Recording Electro-Magnetic Telegraph” in Type “history of the telegraph” into a search engine and the results will point you to Samuel F.

Morse. History largely credits him with the invention of both the electromagnetic telegraph and Morse code, which enabled people to send instant messages across long distances.

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.With such advanced technology engrained in everyday modern life, it can be easy to take for granted such inventions as the Electric Telegraph.

Created in the early 19th century by Samuel Morse, Leonard Gale, and Alfred Vail, this development can be credited as one of the most important forerunners to the modern communication systems in place today.
