Chapter 5.

Chapter five shows us how the telegraph came into the light. The telegraph brought the world of communications to a different level. This new telegraph promised the connection of people from all over the world. The idea of the telegraph came from the word itself which means "distant writer", came from a signaling system made for military purposes in recolutionary France. The telegraph was made around the same time as the penny print. The penny print was newspapers sold for a penny a copy: they sold to a wider market.
