The early 1800’s certainly saw the creation of a new form of communication with the volatile invention known as the telegraph. It might have come almost half way through the 1800’s in 1845, but it forever would change the outcome of political and cultural wars between America and foreigners and even the most monumental domestic squabble in history, the Civil war.

because of the DC system. Then Nikola Tesla came along and changed the world forever with the invention of the AC system. The power could travel much further than DC. Also, DC could not be transformed into high voltages, so many devices wouldn’t be able to be powered with the DC system. Another advantage of AC is that it is much cheaper than DC. Tesla also changed the world in many other ways and inventions, but you’ll have to read on to figure out what else he invented and why they are so important

The decades after the Civil War rapidly changed the face of the United States. The rapid industrialization of the nation changed us from generally agrarian to the top industrial power in the world.
