    The Electric Telegraph. The electric telegraph is an outdated communication that transmitted messages over a relay of wire signals. Based on the non-electric prototype invented by Claude Chappe in , the electrical telegraph emerged to dominate the way the world communicated from long distances. The US Post Office, to which Morse had offered the invention for a quite reasonable $,, stupidly failed to take it up, and so this was the only telegraph line built with federal aid in the United States. Private investors, especially the new Magnetic Telegraph Company, which licensed the Morse patents, eventually found the business lucrative.

    Dionysius Lardner in his book 'The Telegraph Popularised' describes the historical setting into which the telegraph networks grew. The telegraph was part of the general acceleration of communication back then, the term 'communication' encompassed both transportation and communication.

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.

Much useful material has also been obtained from Sabine's Electric Telegraph, Culley's Hand-Book of the Electric Telegraph, Clark's Electrical Measurement, Varley's Report on the Condition of the Western Union Lines, and the columns of The Telegrapher.

The optical telegraph was later replaced by the electric telegraph, which is the focus of this : Mary Bellis.

An electrical telegraph is a telegraph that uses digital on/off electrical signals to convey information via dedicated telecommunication circuits such as electrical wiring or radio links. The signal is normally a serial data stream on one loop, such as Morse code, though in the early days, multiple loops were used in parallel to use combinatorial logic to encode and decode data.
