This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1858 edition. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER V. THE FIRST EXPEDITION--SUMMER OF 1857. THE first attempt to lay the Atlantic Cable was made early in the month of August, 1857. A period of less than thirty days sufficed for the completion of the final arrangements for this Expedition, the festivities incident to the occasion, the departure of the fleet from Valentia, the trial, the defeat, and the return. At 6 P.M. on Tuesday, August 4, the Telegraph Squadron left Qucenstown Harbor for Valentia Bay. It arrived at Valentia on the day following. The fleet detailed for service on this Expedition consisted of eight vessels, four American and four English, as follows: --1. The U.S. steam-frigate Niagara, Captain Hudson, to lay the half of the Cable from Ireland. 2. The U.S. steam-frigate Susquehanna, Captain Sands, to attend upon the Niagara. 3. The U.S. steamer Arctic, Captain Berryman, to make further soundings on the coast of Newfoundland. 4. The U.S. steamer Victoria, Captain Sluyter, to assist in landing the Cable at Newfoundland. 5. H.M. steamer Agamemnon, Captain Noddal, to lay the half of the Cable on the American side. 6. H.M. steamer Leopard, Captain Wainwkight, to attend upon the Agamemnon. 7. H.M. steamer Cyclops, Captain Dayman, to go ahead of the steamers and keep the course. 8. H.M. steamer Advice, Captain Eaymond, to assist in landing the Cable at Valentia. The presence on the Island of the representative of Royalty in Ireland contributed in no small degree to the popular idea of the importance of the occasion; and the idea found development in bonfires, pyrotechnic displays, music, feasting, dancing, and cheering, and the characteristic attributes of an Irish merry-making. His Excellency, the Lord Lieutenant (the Earl of Carlisle), attended by his suite, and..

A NSTA Best STEM Book Explore the extraordinary achievement of Cyrus Field and one of the greatest engineering feats of the 19th century: laying a transatlantic telegraph cable to create instant communication between two continents. Cyrus Field had a big dream to connect North America and the United Kingdom with a telegraph line, which would enable instant communication. In the mid-1800s, no one knew if it was possible. That didn't dissuade Cyrus, who set out to learn about undersea cables and built a network of influential people to raise money and create interest in his project. Cyrus experienced numerous setbacks: many years of delays and failed attempts, millions of dollars lost, suspected sabotage, technological problems, and more. But Cyrus did not give up and forged ahead, ultimately realizing his dream in the summer of 1866. Mary Morton Cowan brilliantly captures Cyrus's life and his steadfast determination to achieve his dream.
