1: An American inventor, had been seeking support for a system of telegraph lines. On May 24, 1844, Morse got the chance to demonstrate that he could send messages instantly along wires. As a crowd in the U.S. capital watched, Morse tapped in the words, What hath God wrought. A few moments later, the telegraph operator in Baltimore sent the same message back in reply. The telegraph worked. Soon telegraph messages were flashing back and forth between Washington and Baltimore. | Samuel Morse

2: Cyrus McCormick was interested in machines that would ease the burden of farmwork. After years of tinkering, McCormick designed and constructed the mechanical reaper and made a fortune manufacturing and selling it. For hundreds of years, farmers had harvested grain with handheld sickles. McCormick's reaper could harvest grain much faster than a hand-operated sickle. Because farmers could harvest wheat so quickly, they began planting more of it. Growing wheat became profitable. | Cyrus McCoromick

3: Three revolutionary inventions of the 1830s changed farming methods and encouraged settlers to cultivate larger areas of the West. One was the steel-tipped plow that John Deere invented in 1837. Far sturdier than the wooden plow, Deere's plow easily cut through the hard-packed sod of the prairies. | John Deere
