would use to mail letters and parcels back
and forth to their families in the west. The
Pony Express started in St. Louis, Missouri
and ended in Sacramento, California.
Stations were set up 10 to 15 miles apart,
and riders would gallop for as fast as they
could on horses, and when they got to one of
the stations, There would be a new horse, and
rider. It took about 10 days for the mail to travel
across the country. www.artesianmedia.com Telegraph Samual F. B. Morse invented the telegraph
and the morse code. It took him 12 years to get it working and get the wire and poles up across the country.Then in 1844, the first message was sent from the Supreme Court

"Eli Whitney failed to profit from his invention
because imitations of his machine appeared and
his 1794 patent for the cotton gin could not be
upheld in court until 1807. Whitney could not
stop others from copying and selling his cotton
