August 22, 2020

Today, we ride the rails again with Thomas Edison and we look at his early career as a telegrapher with the story “The Young Telegraph Operator” from the book “The Boy's Life of Edison” written by William H. Meadowcroft. Be sure to check out the link below for the blog from Historical Ken. It really cleared up the mystery about the route that Thomas Edison took as he traveled back and forth from Port Huron to Detroit.   Website: http://www.thefightingmoose.com/   iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-fighting-moose/id1324413606?mt=2/   Story (PDF): http://ww.thefightingmoose.com/episode138.pdf   Historical Ken – Michigan Train Depots: The Edison Route from 1859 to 1866 http://passionforthepast.blogspot.com/2020/03/michigan-train-depots-edison-route-from.html   Reading List: http://www.thefightingmoose.com/readinglist.pdf   YouTube: https://youtu.be/SqGAFsGcz0E/   Books: “The Boy's Life of Edison” http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/50523   Music/Audio: Artist – Analog by Nature http://dig.ccmixter.org/people/cdk   National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA): http://www.nasa.gov   Songs Used: cdk - Sunday by Analog By Nature (c) copyright 2016 Licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution (3.0) license. http://dig.ccmixter.org/files/cdk/53755
