The Telegraph is like a phone but it writes in Morse Code. Morse code is a invention that writes the alphabet in a way that has lines and also dots too. It was a very smart invention in the ( 1830's - 1840's ) and it was created by Samuel Morse. He created it because it could get message's to family's and friend's. It was great because friends and family's could not write to each other from long way's away if the Telegraph was not invented. And dad's could not send notes to their children or wife too. But because Samuel Morse was so generous he invented the Telegraph. And the ancient Greece, Egypt and China would just use smoke or drumbeats to signal others. Soon Samuel Morse and others created the electric Telegraph in the 19th century. And more used the electric Telegraph than the original Telegraph. But Samuel Morse was an intelligent man who created because if the Telegraph wasn't ever invented people would not have the idea of creating the Telephone. .
