The biggest impact that the telegraph had on history was on communication. The telegraph revolutionized communication because instead of just being able to hear of it or read about it. Also it could be spread in a broader span faster.


There was never really a single person that invented it because so many people changed or improved it. Anesthesia was a revolutionary thing because now people could be put a sleep or unconscious during their operations.
