Telegraph Infrastructure in the United States

Telegraph lines in Ohio and South Carolina in 1853

Technology played an important role in the North's victory in the War Between the States.

In 1853, densely populated Ohio was criss-crossed with telegraph lines while lightly populated South Carolina had few lines.
